Bertram Luard-Selby (12 February 1853 – 26 December 1918) was an English composer and cathedral organist. As an organist, he served in Salisbury Cathedral and Rochester Cathedral. As a composer, he wrote prolifically for the church, the concert-hall and the theater.

Luard-Selby was born at Ightham Mote, Kent. He studied the organ at the Leipzig Conservatoire, and was organist at, successively, St. Barnabas, Marylebone, and Highgate School (1876); Salisbury Cathedral (1881); St. John's, Torquay, 1884; and St. Barnabas, Pimlico, 1887. He was appointed organist of Rochester Cathedral on the death of the incumbent, John Hopkins, in 1900, and held the post until 1916. He was the musical editor of "Hymns Ancient and Modern," published in 1904.

A diverse composer, his church music includes two settings of the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis, 16 anthems, and a number of pieces for the organ.

"Sketch No. 2" was published by Collard Moutrie in 1916. Unfortunately, this is the only sketch of the set that I have. :-(

"Sketch No. 2" is a brief utterance. It is warm and melodic, and expressive in an "Anglican way." It seems more of a brief voluntary, as opposed to a more "rhapsodic work" which the title "sketch" may imply.

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Bertram Luard-Selby, and some of Rochester Cathedral, where the composer was organist at the time this composition was written.
