Horatio Parker
I’m going to guess a lot of you already know of Horatio Parker, but I didn’t!

A Northern Ballad

Part 1:

  1. I’d never heard of him either, but I enjoyed the piece. Funny how a few composers survive to represent a much larger group of their peers for any given period.

    That said, he’s a journeyman craftsman, but I wouldn’t attend a Horatio Parker Festival…

  2. & to think I was going to have an Horatio Parker festival, complete with cookies and ice cream. Ah well. 😉
