Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir Charles Villiers Stanford was an eminent English-domiciled composer who was particularly notable for his choral music. He was professor at the Royal College of Music and University of Cambridge. Stanford was born in Dublin, the only son of John Stanford, examiner in the city's Court of Chancery and clerk of the Crown, County Meath. Both parents were accomplished amateur musicians; his father sang bass and his mother was a pianist. Charles trained under R. M. Levey, Miss Meeke, Mrs Joseph Robinson, Miss Flynn and Michael Quarry; and Sir Robert Stewart taught him composition and organ. His precocious ability was recorded in an article in The Musical Times in December 1898. He came to London in 1862 as a pupil of Arthur O'Leary and Ernst Pauer, and in 1870 won a scholarship to Queens' College, Cambridge
