Wordworth was, I believe, a descendant of the poet's brother. British composers in particular - Vaughan Williams, Walton, Britten, Rubbra, Arnold, and of course Wordsworth and others - throughout the 20th century music that adhered to perennial values. Eventually temporizers like Harrison Birtwistle came along. But Britain should be proud that it produced a good many first-rate composers in the last century, and should not forget to program their works as much as possible.
