Abstract

In this article, I would like to give a brief outline of significant Anglo-German connections in 19th-century music and consider the role of Prince Albert (1819-1861) and his compositions in this context. Throughout the Victorian era, Britain welcomed many German-born musicians who made significant contributions to the development of music. On the other hand, a considerable number of British musicians studied and worked in Germany, furthering connections in both directions. Many of these musicians were closely linked with each other, and most were connected to Prince Albert in some way.
