Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry
(1848 - 1918)



"The history of the sonata is the history of an attempt to cope with one of the most singular problems ever presented to the mind of man, and its solution is one of the most successful achievements of his artistic instincts. "

Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry

English composer noted for his choral music, including the cantata Blest Pair of Sirens. Parry's best-known work, however, is his setting of William Blake's poem 'Jerusalem', which has acquired the status of a national song.
