Alec Rowley (13 March 1892 – 11 January 1958) was an English composer and writer on music.
He studied at London's Royal Academy of Music with Frederick Corder, and later taught at Trinity College in the same city. He frequently performed and broadcast piano duets with Edgar Moy, and was widely known for his compositions for amateur forces.
His seven choral songs, A Sailors Garland, are full of good music, challenging enough to make rehearsals interesting. In addition, he wrote many pieces for solo piano and solo organ.
He was for many years the organist of St Alban's Church, Teddington and was a contributor to 'The Rotunda', the house magazine of Henry Willis & Sons Ltd.
I uploaded this before, and decided to remove the upload. I played it in the tempo prescribed (approx. 2 minutes) and it sounded so hurried, that I could not stand it.
So this time in my own tempo. Sorry, Alec, or whoever put the time indication there.
