 honour of Queen Victoria


In celebration of Queen Victoria's 80th birthday in 1899, thirteen of the leading composers and poets of the day collaborated on a collection of partsongs to rival their Elizabethan model, The Triumphs of Oriana. Published in a limited edition of only 100 copies, this superb sequence, studded with musical gems, provides a fascinating snapshot of the British musical renaissance on the eve of the twentieth century.
