Crediton Musicians

Trans. Devon. Assoc. vol. 14, (1882), pp. 322-328.


Alfred Ewards

Prepared by Michael Steer

Crediton has a long musical tradition that can be traced through church records over hundreds of years. This paper, presented at the Association's 1882 Crediton meeting focuses on the lives and work of a number of the town's musicians, starting in the early 1800's with John Davy, composer of operas, then the blind organist Samuel Chapple, then Mr George Rudall and Mr Joseph Pollard. The paper concludes with mention of several Crediton's musicians who were alive at the time it was written.
