Sir Malcolm Sargent (1895–1967) was the pre-eminent choral conductor of his day. Son of a coal merchant, Sargent was born in Stamford, Lincolnshire, and his early musical education was that of a church musician. It was as a result of the encouragement of Sir Henry Wood that in the early 1920s he moved to London and focussed his attention on conducting. Sargent held the chief conductorship of the Liverpool Philharmonic, Hallé, and BBC Symphony orchestras, but was probably most widely known as the chief conductor of the Promenade Concerts from 1948 until his death.
