RICHARD WOODWARD (1743 - 1777)
Born in England, Richard Woodward moved to Dublin when his father became Master of the Choristers at Christ Church Cathedral. He himself became a chorister, later serving there as organist and at St. Patrick’s Cathedral as a choral vicar. He succeeded his father at both cathedrals in 1776.
Sacred and Secular Vocal Music
Woodward left a set of Songs, Canons and Catches (1767) and a few church compositions, some included in his Cathedral Music, Op. 3.
