Misc. Comments

This may be the violin sonata by Ashton about which someone (signing himself as "Gamba") wrote, after hearing a performance (by the composer with Gompertz) that "Mr. Ashton is an Englishman, and therefore he would be better advised if he wrote English music..." (The Strad, volume 4, April? 1894, p.297.) (composition date 1893 from Patrick Webb's list on MusicWeb.)
