Description: Of the five English composers featured on this release, only two are really known at all – Coleridge-Taylor and Boughton – but all wrote wonderful music in Romantic style – in the shadow of Elgar, Delius and other prominent figures. Ellicott, whose trio is from 1889, had much success and performances in the 1880s before moving from orchestral to chamber music; Forrester was less prolific, concentrating on his teaching career, but has a fine impressionist voice and his work won the 1917 Cobbett prize. Warner was very well known as a violist and member of the London String Quartet; he was very busy as a composer with several chamber works, two operas and over a hundred songs to his name and his 1921 trio won the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Prize. Trio Anima Mundi.
