'Samuel Coleridge Taylor Foundation invites articles about Coleridge-Taylor’s US impact'

[Samuel Coleridge-Taylor]

The Afro-British composer and conductor Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) is featured at AfriClassical posts an excerpt from an article by Hilary Burrage of the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Foundation,, on the LinkedIn Group “Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912): Britain's Greatest Black Composer”:

These articles will be from historians, scholars and other commentators about the impact of SCT’s life and work in the United States, from the time of his visits until the present. We are aware that this is an area of increasing interest, as more information has emerged about the direct and indirect ways in which Samuel Coleridge-Taylor has helped to shape developments in the USA, both in New York (especially Harlem) and Boston, and elsewhere.

We will be delighted to publish all appropriate submissions in this category on this website ( and we are hopeful also that a selection of what are deemed to be the most illuminating of these will also be distributed on one or more American websites.

Articles may be of any (website readable) length and should be written in an accessible style; references are welcome, but only when they illuminate the text substantively. Illustrations and photographs are also welcome, with the proviso that in submitting them the author confirms that there is no copyright bar to their publication on the SCTF website. Potential authors are invited to make contact with us via email on the website, to submit possible (ideas for) articles or to discuss their intended submission.
