 Update me on new releases by Crotch

William Crotch (7/05/1775 - 12/29/1847)

William Crotch was born in Norwich in 1775 and in childhood was an infant phenomenon, his promise not fully realised in later life. He took his doctorate at Oxford, where he served as organist at the university church until 1806, when he moved to London, still retaining his title as professor at Oxford. He became the first principal of the Royal Academy of Music in 1822, resigning ten years later, to enjoy retirement until his death in 1847. He did much to bring about a revival in English church music, and his compositions include oratorios, anthems and psalm chants, many of which remain part of English cathedral repertoire.
