Vernon George "Tod" Handley CBE (11 November 1930 – 10 September 2008) was a British conductor, known in particular for his support of British composers. He was born of a Welsh father and an Irish mother into a musical family in Enfield, London. He acquired the nickname "Tod" because his feet were turned in at his birth, which his father simply summarised: "They toddle". Handley preferred the use of the name "Tod" throughout his life over his given names.

The widely seen conductor Handley was known particularly for his dozens of recordings of music by composers of the British Isles. Charles Villiers Stanford: Piano Concerto No. 2; Concert Variations upon an English Theme "Down Among the Dead Men".

Ernest John Moeran Biography (BBC). Though born in Heston, west of London, Moeran was largely brought up in the village of Bacton, on the Norfolk coast, where his father was parish priest. He spent five years at Uppingham School, then in 1913 he went to the Royal College of Music, studying piano and composition under Charles Villiers Stanford. After a brief period teaching music at Uppingham, Moeran returned to the RCM, now studying with John Ireland. He also began collecting folk music in East Anglia (particularly in its country pubs) and making arrangements of the melodies he heard. These left an imprint on the character of his own music, especially the two orchestral Rhapsodies (1922 and 1924).
