Collection Description

Collection Title
Documents relating to professors (1875-1896)
A collection of one folder of documents and programmes relating to professors of the Royal Academy of Music, from 1875 to 1896. The collection contains documents relating to ex-principals of the college, and the majority of items are concerned with memorials to the principals. The collection also includes reprints of “In memoriam” pieces of journalism, pictures and other documents. There are service sheets from the burial of Joseph Barnby (1896), and a memorial service for George Macfarren (1887) – both of these took place in Westminster Abbey. In addition, there is a concert programme from a memorial concert for William Sterndale Bennett: this took place at Uppingham School in 1875.

The collection is arranged in chronological order of Academy principal.
