I've been reading and enjoying "The Elgar-Atkins Friendship" recently and have been intrigued by several mentions of Alexander Brent-Smith. The MW hosted British Composer Dictionary has 3 lines about him. Yet clearly in the 20's etc his music regularly featured in the 3 Choirs Festival alongside many famous names that live on today but Brent-Smith has not managed even 'minor' fame.
But there seem to be several major works - has anyone ever heard any? Are they worth revival? Did he write anything for String Quartet (my own performing field)?
