Abstract

Profile of London composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, 1875-1912. Coleridge-Taylor was the first black composer to make an impact on English ears with "Hiawatha's Wedding Feast," part of a trilogy of cantatas based on Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem. "Hiawatha's Wedding Feast" earned him international celebrity, but "Coly," as he was known to his friends, was swept into a spiral of depression and exhaustion. He died at the age of 37 in London.
