Later hearings may confirm or deny, my impressions was that I was hearing great music. Certain aspects of the work had raised my doubts when simply seen in the vocal score, but a live performance with all the orchestral detail showed that Stanford knew what he was doing. Any subsequent performances (hopefully there will be many) will have a job to surpass this one which, as well as being obviously very well prepared, had great conviction.
