(1903 - 1946)

Percy Whitlock (1903- 1946) was a graduate of the Royal College of Music. He later became Assistant Organist at Rochester Cathedral where he had previously been a chorister. It is thanks to this background that he produced such a skilfully crafted collection of compositions for the church in both the organ and choral spheres. In 1932 he became the Borough Organist at Bournemouth and established his reputation as a recitalist of distinction, despite his badly deformed right hand thumb. Percy Whitlock's early death came about after a long fight against tuberculosis.
