Cecil Forsyth was possibly best-known for his books: first Music and Nationalism (1911), a study and plea for English opera; Orchestration (1914 and many later editions – a later less well known book covered choral orchestration); and A History of Music, written with Stanford (1916). In 1914 he joined the American publishing company H W Gray in New York, where he remained for the rest of his life. As a consequence, without his personal championship, his orchestral music was forgotten in the UK.
