Misc. Comments

"...his intensely strong and virile cantatas deserve especial praise. "The Tale of the Viking," "Henry of Navarre," and "The March of the Monks of Bangor" are all spirited and effective, and will stand comparison in part with Bruch's best work."
Arthur Elson, The World's Best Music: The Musician's Guide, Part 2 (New York: The University Society, Inc., 1913), p.898.
The cantata is a setting of Thomas Babington Macaulay's poem The Battle of Ivry.
