Samuel Coleridge-Taylor is best remembered for his choral masterpiece Hiawatha's Wedding Feast. However, despite the fact that his best-known work meant that he kept returning to large-scale choral composition throughout his life, he was also a prolific composer of incidental music for the stage, and the chamber music that had marked him out as a remarkable student at the Royal College of Music.
