Edward Lloyd (1845-1927)
Last updated: 19.12.20
p_lloyde.jpgAccording to the Internet source given below, Edward Lloyd was a British tenor singer born in London. He achieved fame excelling in concert and oratorio performance, and was recognised the foremost tenor of that genre during the last quarter of the nineteenth century.
Of a musical family, he was a chorister at Westminster Abbey, and in 1866 became a member of both Trinity College and King's College chapels in the University of Cambridge. In 1869 he joined the choir of St Andrew's, Wells Street and was engaged for the Chapel Royal from 1869 to 1871.
He sang at Handel Festivals and created many of the great tenor roles in late Victorian oratorio and concert works. He retired after a farewell concert at the Royal Albert Hall in December 1900.
He died in Worthing.
Humble apologies for listing this estimable gentleman as a "pub and music hall singer" which he most definitely was not. In fact he was so short in stature that he never even appeared in theatres. The inclusion here is because he is listed in Monologues and because so many music hall artistes of his day also sang The Holy City (1892) by Stephen Adams which he made famous and generally beloved. On a personal note I am delighted to discover that he too, just as I, performed in George F. Handel's Acis und Galatea.
Pace Edward Lloyd!
