Biographical notes:

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was born in London on August 15, 1875 to African and English parents. He studied composition (with Charles Villiers Stanford) and violin at the Royal Conservatory of Music. After completing his studies in 1897, he held a variety of posts as a conductor and teacher, while pursuing a career as a composer. The best known of his many works is the cantata Hiawatha's Wedding Feast . Coleridge-Taylor's growing international fame took him to the United States three times, and he composed The Bamboula for the Norfolk Music Festival in Norfolk, Connecticut in 1910. (The present collection is a product of that visit. The Stoeckel Family Papers contain additional pertinent information.) Samuel Coleridge-Taylor died in Croydon, England on September 1, 1912; he was only 37 years old.
