In the popular imagination, there is a crude assumption that between Purcell and Elgar, there was a neglible amount of music by Englishmen that is of any merit, let alone music worth recording. Thankfully, this inaccurate view is being challenged by many in the musical world, in attempt to build up a more rounded and continuous view of English musical history. Sir Henry Rowley Bishop (1786-1855) is a prime example - a composer that highly esteemed in the early 19th century (known as the 'English Mozart'), but who has been neglected except for a couple of songs ('Home sweet home' has ensured he has never been completely forgotten).
