MacFarren, Sir George Alexander

Additional Links

Musical author and composer, born in London; studied at the Royal Academy, and became professor there in 1834; in many operatic works he aimed at restoring old English musical characteristics, and wrote also cantatas "Lenore," "May-Day," &c., and oratorios, of which "John the Baptist" was the first; but his chief merit lies in his writings on theory (1813-1887).
