About this work
This work is dedicated to "The President, the Musical Director (Dr Hubert Hunt) and the members of the Bristol Madrigal Society, for the Society's 100th anniversary".
Cyril Rootham's father Daniel Wilberforce Rootham (1837-1922) was musical director of the Bristol Madrigal Society for 50 years, and it is very likely that Cyril Rootham belonged to the society during his early years in Bristol.
This recording of Hark, where Poseidon's White racing horses (opus 94) was made at the summer concert given by the Ripieno Choir on 21 June 2014 at The Menuhin Hall, Stoke d'Abernon. The performance was conducted by David Hansell.
You can read more about the Ripieno Choir and their current concert programme on the choir's website.
The sheet music for Rootham's "Hark, where Poseidon's White racing horses" is published by OUP Archive and can be ordered as catalogue no OCS787 through Presto Classical. The piano accompaniment is intended for practice only.
