Unfortunately there isn’t much material for practising this term’s music at home, such as rehearsal tapes.
However, you can listen to the Stanford Songs of the Fleet in an excellent recording by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, completely free,on the Internet by going to www.spotify.com.
If you are not already a member you can sign up instantly – no payment, no credit card details, no standing orders. You will, however get short adverts in between the recordings you listen to – not interrupting them – unless you decide to splash out and pay £0.99 to get ad-free listening for a day!
Once signed in, just ‘Search’ Spotify for ‘Songs of the Fleet’. There are even two recordings to choose from. In fact I’m enjoying a bit of ‘Singa Longa Stanford’ as I write this… Many thanks to Rachel Lankaster for pointing this out.
