Alan Titchmarsh's Great British Discovery
Born in Oxton, Cheshire, Cyril Scott knew everybody - Ravel, Humperdinck, Percy Grainger, Debussy - who described Scott as an exceptional artist of his generation - H. G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw, to name but a few. Scott wrote some 400 works including four symphonies, three operas and countless songs including this beautiful lullaby based on words by Christina Rossetti.
