Charles Harford Lloyd

Though Lloyd’s musical compositions were thought to be uneventful, these were comparable to those of S.S. Wesley whom he changed as organist of Gloucester Cathedral. A few of Lloyd’s music shows a knowledge for both instrumental and vocal atmosphere, particularly “Alcestis” arranged for men’s chorus, flute and harp. Lloyd was a recognized organist and musician despite the fact that his compositions may possess lacked luster. As mentioned he was the organist for Gloucester Cathedral; he also offered as the conductor from the Gloucestershire Philharmonic Culture, the Oxford Choral Culture, the Oxford Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Three Choirs Event of Gloucester. Lloyd also trained organ and structure in the RCM, trained at Eton University and was the organist from the Chapel Royal at St. Wayne. He was afforded these opportunites not merely due to his skill but also due to his scholarship or grant having received the BMus in 1871, and DMus in 1892 from Oxford.
