He began studying violin and piano when he was five years old, and received his entire musical education in this country, principally in St. Louis, where he is located at present, and holds a prominent position as a teacher, pianist and composer. He is director of the College of Music at the Forest Park University for Women and is concert pianist of the Kroeger School of Music. Was president of the Music Teachers' National Association from 1895 to 1896, and of the Missouri State Music Teachers' Association from 1897 to 1899.

He has written a great many different kinds of music, and is one of a very few Americans who have published fugues. Mr. Kroeger says that some of his ideas are entirely musical, while others are attempts to illustrate poems in tones, such as his symphony, a suite, and overtures on Endymion, Thanatopis, Sardanapalus and Hiawatha. He has also published a very clever group of sonnets, on various themes; Twelve Concert Studies, which Hughes says "show the influence of Chopin upon a composer who writes with a strong German accent;" an etude, Castor and Pollux; a Romanze; and other studies. A Danse Negre and Caprice Negre resemble similar works of Gottschalk; and his Dance of the Elves is dedicated to Mme. Rive-King.

Edward Harwood

1707 - 1787 Person Name: E. Harwood, 1707-87 Meter: 8.8.6 D Composer of "GROSVENOR" in The Methodist Hymn-Book with Tunes Edward Harwood (of Darwen) (1707–1787) was an English composer of hymns, anthems and songs. His setting of Alexander Pope's The Dying Christian (Vital spark of heav'nly flame) was enormously popular at one time and was widely performed at funerals. Edward Harwood was born at Hoddlesden, near Darwen, Lancashire, in 1707. His early training was as a hand-loom weaver, but he subsequently became a professional musician in Liverpool. His first collection of psalmody, A set of hymns and psalm tunes, was published in London in 1781 and a second collection, entitled A Second Set of Hymns and Psalm Tunes/ was published at Chester in 1786. He died in 1787. Harwood's setting of Pope's ode "Vital spark of heav'nly flame" was first published in Harwood's A set of hymns and psalm tunes: it is written in the style of a glee, and in the original publication is written for the most part for three voices (two trebles and bass), with a fourth (tenor) part being added for the last few bars only. It was, however, often arranged for the more usual four part-choir. The piece was very popular in the first half of the 19th century, being widely sung among Anglicans, Methodists and dissenters, and Lightwood noted in 1935 that it 'certainly had a long and prosperous run, and even now it is not quite extinct'. However, it was not always a great favourite with the clergy, whose objections were mainly to do with the text, which is not explicitly religious (also, it's a poem written by a Catholic, after the last words of the Emperor Hadrian).
