Charles Edward Horn’s Memoirs of his Father and Himself

Edited by Michael Kassler

Published for the first time, in a copiously annotated edition, these memoirs provide previously unknown details of English musical life in the Georgian era. They include an account of Horn’s father, Charles Frederick Horn (1762-1830). Arriving penniless from Germany in 1782, he rose to be music master to Queen Charlotte. Horn’s memoir of himself describes his transition from ‘serious’ musician to the stage. A member of the English Opera House, Drury Lane, he became famous as a singer and composer of popular music.
