BIOGRAPHY

Michael Head (28 January 1900 – 24 August 1976) was a British composer, pianist, organist and singer who left some enduring works still popular today. Michael Head was born in Eastbourne, United Kingdom. His father was a barrister and journalist and his mother an accomplished amateur singer and pianist. At age 10 he commenced his musical training, taking piano lessons at the Adair-Marston School of Music. He was educated at Monkton Combe School in Somerset. During World War I he was called up for service, and while working at an ammunition factory, composed the song cycle Over the rim of the moon (Head et al., 1920). This was to become his first published work.

After the war, Head resumed his studies at the Royal Academy of Music. In 1924 Michael Head was made an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. Head gave his first public recital as a self accompanied singer at Wigmore Hall in 1929. After this debut performance, his fame grew rapidly. He gave several more recitals in the British Isles and in many parts of the world. At the outbreak of World War II, he returned to London and continued teaching throughout the blitz. During this time, he gave hundreds of concerts in factories and in small towns. Michael Head died in Cape Town whilst examining for the Associated Board in Rhodesia and South Africa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Michael_Head
