George Butterworth (1885-1916)

Butterworth was a contemporary of Adrian Boult who championed his music. Although Butterworth's father ahd hoped his son would become a lawyer it was while George was at Oxford Univestity that he met and was influenced by Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams, both at the forefront of the movement to collect English folk songs before they died out. Leaving Oxford, Butterworth began a career in music, writing criticism for The Times, composing, and teaching at Radley College, Oxfordshire. Butterworth did not write a great deal of music, and during the Great War he destroyed many works he did not care for. Of those that survive, his works based on A. E. Housman's collection of poems A Shropshire Lad are the best known. It is generally thought by those who have studied his work that he showed great talent which would have flourished but for his early death.
