William Prendergast

born: 1868
died: 1933
country: United Kingdom

William Prendergast (1868-1933) studied music first with his father (William Prendergast (senior), a pupil of James Turle) and held subsequent Organist posts at churches in Winchester, North Berwick and Edinburgh before becoming Assistant Organist and, later, Organist and Master of the Choristers at Winchester Cathedral in 1902, where he died in service. Most of his compositions remain unpublished, though a cantata, The Sea, is reported to have received performance by the North Berwick Musical Society, and a set of canticles was composed for the Winchester Diocesan Choral Association and published by Novello in the early twentieth century.
