Biographical Notes

Edward Hodges

Organist, composer and writer Edward Hodges was born in Bristol, England in 1796 and acquired a MusD from Cambridge in 1825. After a very brief tenure as organist at St. James's Cathedral in Toronto, Hodges accepted in 1839 a similar position at Trinity Church in New York City. At Trinity Parish, he was successful in establishing an English cathedral-style music program--an approach to church music which had far-reaching consequences and continues to be in evidence at mainline Protestant churches in this country to the present day. His musical compositions are devoted almost exclusively to the church, as are his writings on the study and performance of music. As a collector, Hodges evidenced an interest in antiquarian music materials that was unrivalled by any of his contemporaries in this country at the time. In addition to his standing as an important 19th-century church musician and composer, Hodges' remarkable music collection warrants his being accorded an important place in the history of music in America.
