After his mother's death, Hollins was sent to live with his "Aunt Mary", who gave him his first piano lesson.

In 1878, he enrolled at the Royal Normal College for the Blind at Upper Norwood.

Notice how well the tuba "comes through" on the "tenor theme" on the last page!

This work is the seventh in a series of "Organ Music" by Hollins.

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Alfred Hollins.
