The Goslings

composer
author of text

 
Like John William Hobbs, the organist and composer Sir Frederick Bridge studied with John Goss, an influential figure in nineteenth century church music. Bridge was appointed organist of Manchester Cathedral and, in 1882, became organist of Westminster Abbey. His partsongs include a priceless setting of The Goslings by F.E. Wetherby, first published by Novello in 1913. Victorian sentimentality and Edwardian humour nestle snugly together here, like the song’s two hapless, headless birds in their ‘dish so deep and wide’.
