From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Harvey Grace (1874 – 1944) was an English musician: composer, conductor, editor, teacher. In 1916 he married Dorothy Kirby, and together they had three children, Dorothy, Mary and Robert. Harvey Grace died in February 1944 in Bromley Hospital while awaiting surgery.[1]

Early years

His music education began as a chorister, alongside his four brothers, in the Abbey church at Romsey, his home town. Here was where he first began to play the organ.[1]

Later life

Harvey Grace continued his practical musical education at Southwark Cathedral under Alfred Madeley Richardson (1868-1949). At the same time his academic music education was undertaken by R. J. Pitcher (sometime organist of St Mary Kilburn and Professor of Singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama).
