Detailed Description

David Griffiths sketches the musical history of one of the important musical families of York. John Camidge (1734-1803), Matthew Camidge (1764-1844) and John Camidge (1790-1859) were successive organists of York Minster, prominent players in York concerts and composers. The paper also deals with Thomas Simpson Camidge who was organist at Hexham, Swindon and Swansea, and his son, John Henry Camidge who was organist at Beverely Minster for many years. The work of a hitherto unnoticed member of the family, Elizabeth Margaret Camidge, is also dealt with. A appendix of musical works is included.
