Pictured here is the great Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford (1852–1924). Born in Dublin, he was educated at the University of Cambridge, where he was appointed organist at Trinity College while still an undergraduate. He was one of the founding professors of the Royal College of Music. The choir will be singing his beautiful Morning Service in B-flat (Te Deum and Jubilate Deo).
