Hubert Parry

Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry (February 27, 1848 - October 7, 1918) was an English composer, probably best known for his setting of William Blake's poem, Jerusalem.

Born in Bournemouth, Hampshire, he was the son of an inventor, and was educated at Eton College and Oxford University (Exeter College). From 1894, he was director of the Royal College of Music. His works include the oratorio, King Saul, the opera, Lancelot and Guinevere, and various orchestral music. He collaborated with the poet, Robert Bridges, on songs, and was responsible for the third volume of the Oxford History of Music (1907).
