Charles Wood Summer School

Charles Wood, the renowned musician and composer, was born at 11, Vicars’ Hill, Armagh in 1866 and received his early musical education as a chorister in the Cathedral opposite his home. He later studied at the Royal College of Music and later became a Professor of music at Cambridge University. When Wood died in 1926, he left behind a legacy of over 250 sacred works including hymn tunes, songs, music for Greek plays and chamber music. It is largely his sacred music that he is remembered today and this is why the focus of the Summer School is music in worship.
