Charles H. Steggall (3 June 1826 in London – 7 June 1905 in London) was an English hymnodist and composer.

Early life

The son of R. W. Steggall, Charles Steggall was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge[1] and then studied under William Sterndale Bennett at the Royal Academy of Music, where he subsequently became Professor of organ and harmony.

Later career

Steggall worked as an organist for many parishes including: Christ Chapel, Maida Vale; Christ Church, Lancaster Gate and Lincoln's Inn,[2] where he was succeeded by his son Reginald Steggall. He was an examiner for the DMus degree.

As its first Hon Secretary, he played an important role under William Sterndale Bennett to form the Bach Society, forerunner to the Bach Choir in London.[3] He taught organ studies to Helen Johnston (a student at Queen's College, London) whom Sterndale Bennett had chosen to translate the St Matthew Passion from German into English for the first performance in London on 6 April 1854.

He edited the first English edition of Bach's Six Motets (BWV 225-230). He was one of the first twenty-one member of the Royal College of Organists.[4] In 1906 he republished the Complete edition of the Hymns Ancient and Modern.
