Notes:
English composer. The reputation of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, son of an English mother and a father who was a doctor from Sierra Leone, has suffered in recent years, although at one time his music enjoyed considerable popularity in England, while as a conductor visiting New York he was hailed by one critic as "the black Mahler". Coleridge-Taylor's best known composition is the cantata Hiawatha's Wedding Feast, later extended as Scenes from the Song of Hiawatha, based on the poem by Longfellow.
