Wilfrid Ernest Sanderson was the son of a Wesleyan minister and the father of an Anglican bishop. Born in Ipswich of Lancastrian parents, he moved to Launceston in Cornwall as an infant, was educated in London, and died in Surrey. However, his career was spent mainly as organist, choirmaster and composer in Doncaster. In this last guise he produced some wonderfully stirring of ballads, among them ‘Until’. The beautiful words are by Edward Frederick Lockton, here using the pseudonym ‘Edward Teschemacher’.
