Composer: Alfred Ernest Whitehead
Published in 2 hymnals


Composer: Alfred Ernest Whitehead

Whitehead, Alfred. (Peterborough, England, July 10, 1887--April 1, 1974, Amherst, Nova Scotia). Anglican. A.R.C.O., 1909; University of Toronto, Mus.Bac., 1916; McGill University (Montreal), Mus.Doc., 1922; F.R.C.O., 1924. Organist, Christ Church Cathedral, Montreal, 1922-1947; dean of music, Mount Allison University (Sackville, New Brunswick), 1947-1953. He composed over 400 works for organ and for choir, occasionally writing for the latter lyrics which proved equally suitable for congregational singing. These, however, remain incidental to his work in educating and inspiring young church musicians. --Hugh D. McKellar, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
