Dorothy Howell was born in Handsworth, Birmingham and, like Joseph Holbrooke, entered the Royal Academy of Music – something she did at the unusually early age of fifteen – where she studied composition under Sir John Blackwood McEwen. Apart from Lamia and the Piano Concerto, Howell’s compositions for orchestra are not many, but they are all of a uniformly high standard.

Sir Eugene Goossens called Cyril Scott the ‘Father of modern British music’; he has also been referred to as ‘the English Debussy’. A prolific composer, Scott wrote more than 400 works, though many of these were piano pieces or songs. Major compositions include four symphonies, four operas, four large-scale choral works including the outstanding Hymn of Unity, and numerous concertos. There is also a considerable body of chamber music.

Lillian Elkington was born in Birmingham and studied piano and composition at the Birmingham and Midland Institute School of Music with Sir Granville Bantock. She also studied the organ, and became a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music and an Associate of the Royal College of Organists in her early twenties. The Harpsichord Concerto was almost certainly Elkington’s first work for orchestra and one can only marvel at the extraordinary mastery of that medium which it displays.
