Richard Henry Warren (Composer, Arranger)

Born: September 17, 1859 - Albany, New York, USA
Died: December 3, 1933 - South Chatham, Massachusetts, USA

Richard Henry Warren was an American composer, conductor and organist of ability. His father, George William Warren, had long been a prominent organist in Brooklyn and Albany, and on discovering his son's talent, gave him lessons. Later teachers were John White, George Wiegand and P.S. Schnecker, and from 1880 to 1886 he studied abroad.

In 1877 Richard Henry Warren became music-director and organist at the Church of St. John the Evangelist in New York, remaining until 1879, when he became organist at the Reformed Episcopal Church. In 1880 he went to All Souls' Church, a post he held six years, then went to St. Bartholomew's, where he stayed until 1905. As a choral conductor he has been very successful and has directed the concerts of the Church Choral Society and a number of other similar societies.

In the field of composition Richard Henry Warren is represented by a romantic opera, Phyllis; the operettas, Magnolia, All on a Summer's Day, and Igala; many church services and anthems; a cantata for baritone solo, chorus and orchestra; the string quartet, Ticonderoga, and many songs.
