"The conspicuous qualities of Parry's writing for the voice have possibly diverted attention from his impressive achievements as an instrumental composer….he composed five symphonies, three suites, a concert overture, an elegy, a set of variations, and lastly, in 1914, the warmly expressive symphonic poem From Death to Life" Michael Pope

"No more remarkable man has appeared on the British musical scene than Hubert Parry. The range of his activities was exceptional: the distinction he achieved in many of them is almost without parallel. Has any other musician been so advanced a thinker and outstanding writer as to produce a philosophical book like Instinct and Character? Yet this man was also a magnificent Director of the Royal College of Music and an illustrious Professor of Music at Oxford University. The conspicuous qualities of Parry's writing for the voice have possibly diverted attention from his impressive achievements as an instrumental composer….he composed five symphonies, three suites, a concert overture, an elegy, a set of variations, and lastly, in 1914, the warmly expressive symphonic poem From Death to Life" Michael Pope
