Lemare, Edwin Henry


Brilliant organist. Lemare was born at Ventnor, Isle of Wight. He was a pupil at the Royal Academy of Music and later was elected to a fellowship of the Academy. He was early considered a musician of much promise and when nineteen was made a fellow of the College of Organists. Beside holding successively many important church organist appointments in or near London he has given a number of artistic recitals, and has composed organ-music and edited a series of works for his instrument. He came to America in 1902 to fill the post of organist and music-director at Carnegie Hall, Pittsburg. In 1906 he returned to England.
