Description: Many of these late pieces were produced for the demands of the commercial market but the symphony, completed at the end of 1917, is Stanford’s “war symphony”, using a penitential hymn tune for its first movement main subject, titleing the original source second movement Benedictus and using another, brighter hymn tune in the finale to express resoluteness and faith.
