The boy was al- lowed no musical instruction and his talents along this line were strongly discouraged.
These consist of solos, duets, trios and choruses and of part-songs for men's voices, which were particularly popu- lar and successful. His compositions consist of two can- BIOGRAPHIES Acton tatas for female voices, Forest Bells, and The Rose and the Nightingale; a chorus for male voices, For Home and Liberty, which was awarded a prize, offered by the South London Musical Club in 1888; also duets; many songs; and piano pieces.

Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each lile is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find additional materials through Google Book Search. Do not assume that just because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries. An especial effort has been made to include as many contemporary musicians as possible, and American musicians have been given proportionately more space than those of foreign countries.
