As noted in the video I have as yet been unable to find out much about Kate Boundy -- though I have been pointed toward some material that may shed light on the circumstances of her death. I recorded these pieces in 2013, the centenary of that death; I suspect I was the only person on the planet to mark the occasion. Relistening to this music I was, once again, charmed, so I decided to post it here. I suspect that had Kate Boundy been a man she would have left a bigger biographical footprint. The early life of her better known (and longer-lived) contemporary Ethel Smyth is testimony to the difficulties facing a Victorian woman composer -- and Smyth at least came from a wealthy background, whereas Boundy was a shopkeeper's daughter. I'm planning to do new recordings at some point in the future, and I may by then know more about her.
