Charles Harford Lloyd
(1849–1919) was organist of Gloucester Cathedral (1876–1885) before Brewer’s appointment
and was one of Brewer’s teachers. Lloyd composed his cantata “A Song of Judgment” for chorus and orchestra with text from the Biblical
books of Ezekiel and Habakkuk. It was first performed for the Three Choirs Festival at Hereford in 1891. The Passacaglia is a transcription of the
movement “His glory covered the heavens” that was originally for soprano and chorus.
Alfred Herbert Brewer was born in Gloucester, England, on June 21, 1865. He was highly educated and well-trained in
music. He studied organ with such teachers as Charles Villiers Stanford, he won scholarships, he earned multiple degrees, he was awarded
Hon.R.A.M. and F.R.C.O, and was knighted by the king. He was a well-rounded musician who was able to bring orchestral favorites to the organ
in transcriptions that are approachable and always easier to play than those by other well-known organists such as Edwin Lemare.
