HARINGTON (Harington)

Composer: Henry Harington

Born: September 29, 1727, Kelston, Somerset, England. Died: January 15, 1816, Bath, Somerset, England. Buried: Kelston, Somerset, England. Harington, a physician, was mayor of Bath, England, in 1793, and founded the Harmonic Society there. "A tablet was erected to his memory in Bath Abbey, on which is a curious mathematical figure highly suggestive of a proposition in Euclid, but which is really a design showing the ratios of the vibration numbers in the various intervals of the major scale." Lightwood, p. 358  Go to person page >
