Who are the greatest English Composers of classical music to have ever lived?


I just love classical music. However it's a pity how little I know about some of the composers. Apart from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, I know very little bout the rest. So I turn to you.

    Thanks mate. I agree with you about the Germans..they were just in a class of their own at the time.
