This edition of 23 pieces by Ernest Shand is derived from his output of 220 works, revealing a guitar composer of great originality and charm who had a gift for spinning infectious melodies. The sentimental melodies and colorful harmonies of Shand's music impart a unique Victorian flavor which often seems to echo the sing-along anthems and nostalgia of English music halls. Written in standard notation only this book is recommended for the advanced guitarist. The editor, Stanley Yates, provides generous historical and performance notes on Shand's work.
