Book Description:
Sir Arthur Somervell (1863 1937), composer and educationist, influenced the musical and educational life of England over four decades. Remembered today principally as an accomplished composer of songs and choral works, he also worked for twenty eight years as one of His Majesty's Inspectors of Schools (HMI), with special responsibility for the teaching of music.Towards the end of his life Somervell gathered together a number of his articles, in which he expounds a passionate philosophy of music education, makes candid remarks about musical life and musical education in England, and provides insights into the sometimes bitter debate with Cecil Sharp about folk song. These collected writings have now been prepared for publication by Gordon Cox, together with some unpublished speeches and letters, enabling musicologists and music educators to re evaluate the significance of Somervell's contribution to the musical and educational life of his time.GORDON COX is senior lecturer in education at the University of Reading.
