SIR CHARLES H. H. PARRY, 1st BARONET
As Director of the Royal College of Music, he commends someone for an "excellent" term.
Partly Printed Document signed: "Charles H. H. Parry" as Director [of the Royal College of Music], 1 page, 6¼x3. Titled "Director's Remarks", in full: "Maintaining well the excellent standard of the first term's report". Printed text at bottom: "The Christmas Term will begin on Monday, 28th, September, 1896". Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry (1848-1918) was an Underwriter for Lloyd's of London before finding his true calling as a composer and music historian. Parry, made a nonhereditary Baronet in 1902, is best known for his choral song, "Jerusalem" (familiar to movie-goers from the finale of Chariots of Fire), and for the coronation anthem, "I Was Glad," (1902), first performed for the coronation of King Edward VII and recently for the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (2011). While most of his compositions were in the classical tradition, he also wrote theatrical songs. Parry was Director of the Royal College of Music from 1895 until his death, and a professor of music at Oxford from 1900. He wrote several books of music history, as well as encyclopedic entries. He died in the great Spanish influenza epidemic. One vertical fold. Irregularly cut at edges. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
