English Baroque composer, organist, and musicologist Maurice Greene (1696-1755) was skilled in all of these. By age forty, he held all the major musical appointements of the land. He was Organist of St. Paul's Cathedral, Organist and Composer to the Chapel Royal, Professor of Music at Cambridge University and Master of the King's Musick. His greatest legacy was the gathering of church music, ancient and modern, to be presented to every cathedral in England. He died before this could be completed and his friend and student William Boyce completed the monumental Cathedral Music.
