(1814 - 1856)

The son of Thomas Forbes Walmisley, eldest of 12 children and named after his father’s teacher and his own godfather, Thomas Attwood Walmisley was professor of music at Cambridge, where he served as organist at Trinity College and St. John’s. His early death was said to have been the result of a propensity to drink too much.

Church, Vocal and Instrumental Music

Walmisley wrote a number of services for the Anglican liturgy, 22 anthems, and a smaller quantity of secular vocal music. His instrumental music includes organ voluntaries, organ concertos, three string quartets and other chamber music.
