Birth / Death Dates
1877 - 1953

Quilter was an English composer of the early 20th century. He belonged to the Frankfurt Group, a circle of composers who studied at the Hoch Conservatory in the late 1890s (which also included Percy Grainger, Cyril Scott, Balfour Gardiner, and Norman O'Neill). His reputation in England rests largely on his many solo songs and on his light music for orchestra. He is noted as an influence on several English composers, including Peter Warlock.
