(1877 - 1950)

The English composer Henry Balfour Gardiner studied intermittently in Frankfurt, returning to Oxford for a degree in classics. His private income enabled him to promote the music of his Frankfurt fellow students Roger Quilter, Percy Grainger, Cyril Scott and Norman O’Neill.

Orchestral Music

Balfour Gardiner had stopped composing by 1925; he remains known in English repertoire mainly for his Shepherd Fennel’s Dance (from an episode in a novel by Thomas Hardy) and his Evening Hymn.
