Leslie Heward (12/08/1897 - 5/03/1943)

Leslie Heward began to study music at the age of five. With the support of Sir Sydney Nicholson, organist of Manchester Cathedral, he entered the cathedral Choir School, where he was a pupil for five years and was active as a chorister and as an assistant organist at the cathedral; in 1914 he was appointed organist of St Andrew’s Church in Ancoats, a suburb of Manchester. Heward moved to London in 1917, having won a composition scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where he studied composition with Stanford and Vaughan Williams and conducting with Sir Adrian Boult; among his fellow pupils was Constant Lambert, like Heward a gifted composer and conductor. After leaving the college in 1921 Heward earned his living from several different occupations: teaching at Eton, conducting the British National Opera Company, writing incidental music for the theatre, and as a cinema organist in Brighton.
