Description: This is a transcription of A Song of Praise by English composer John Stainer (1840-1901)

John Stainer was an English composer, organist, and music educator born on June 6, 1840, in London. He began his musical career as a chorister at St. Paul’s Cathedral and went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music. After graduation, Stainer was appointed organist at St. Michael’s College, Tenbury, and later at Magdalen College, Oxford. He also served as the Professor of Music at Oxford University from 1889 until his death.

Stainer was a prolific composer who wrote in a variety of genres. He is perhaps best known for his oratorio “The Crucifixion,” which is still performed regularly today. Stainer’s other works include church music, hymns, anthems, and organ music. He was praised for his skillful use of harmony and counterpoint and was considered one of the most important composers of his time.

In addition to his work as a composer and organist, Stainer was a respected music educator. He helped establish the Royal College of Music in London and wrote several influential music textbooks. Stainer passed away on March 31, 1901, but his legacy as a composer, performer, and music educator continues to inspire musicians around the world today.
