Summary

Oakeley, Sir Herbert Stanley, Knt., Mus. Doc. second son of Sir Herbert Oakeley, Bart., born at Ealing, July 22, 1830, was educated at Rugby and Christ Church, Oxford. He graduated as B.A. in 1853, and as M.A. in 1856. He studied harmony under Dr. Stephen Elvey, and the organ under Dr. Johann Schneider at Dresden, and completed his musical studies at Leipsic. In 1865 he was elected Professor of Music in the University of Edinburgh. He received his Mus. Doc. degree from the Archbishop of Canterbury (Tait) in 1871, and was knighted in 1876. Among his publications are some 20 songs, with pianoforte or orchestral accompaniment, 3 vocal duets, 12 part-songs, Students' songs and choral arrangements of 12 Scottish National melodies, and of various others for male voices. For the Church, some dozen anthems, a Morning and Evening Service, and many contributions to collections of church music, including the wellknown setting (‘Edina’) of ‘Saviour, blessed Saviour,’ and (Abends) ‘Sun of my Soul,’ in ‘Hymns Ancient and Modern.’ He has also published a few of his compositions for pianoforte and organ, and for orchestra, including a festal and a funeral march.

Sir Herbert Oakeley is an organ-player of exceptional ability, and the Recitals which he gives during the session of the university are much esteemed. He has since his appointment given a great impulse to the public performance of music at the Reid Concert and the annual festival, which both in programme and in execution are a great boon to the musical portion of the inhabitants of Edinburgh.
