Abstract

Compositions commissioned by the Radcliffe Trust for the fourth Radcliffe Music Award in 1975.

Biographical / Historical

The Radcliffe Trust was created under the provisions of the will of Dr John Radcliffe (1650-1714), who bequeathed (inter alia) a legacy of £40,000 for the construction of a new library in Oxford, along with other annual sums to employ a librarian, purchase books and maintain the building. For a full account of the history of the Trust see I. Guest, Dr John Radcliffe and His Trust (London: The Radcliffe Trust, 1991).

Michael Finnissy (b 1946), A. Payne (b 1936), B. Elias (b 1948) and A. Boyd (b 1946) are all composers. See Grove Music Online for further details.
