Haydn Wood (1882–1959)

Haydn Wood
Like his near contemporary Eric Coates, Haydn Wood was a master of finely crafted light music that over the years has retained an undiminished popularity for its period appeal. A versatile musician, in his early years he showed equal promise as a composer and as a virtuoso violinist, later also becoming well-known as a conductor who broadcast regularly on the BBC.

Though renowned for sentimental ballads such as A Brown Bird Singing, Bird of Love Divine and Roses of Picardy, he was also a prolific composer of concertos, suites and overtures, and of smaller scale instrumental works, including the attractive items available from the Stainer & Bell archive below.
