Description:
Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, 1st Baronet (27 February 1848 – 7 October 1918) was an English composer, teacher and historian of music.

Parry's first major works appeared in 1880. As a composer he is best known for the choral song "Jerusalem", the coronation anthem "I was glad" and the hymn tune "Repton", which sets the words "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind". He was director of the Royal College of Music from 1895 until his death and was also professor of music at the University of Oxford from 1900 to 1908. He also wrote several books about music and music history. Some contemporaries rated him as the finest English composer since Henry Purcell, but his academic duties prevented him from devoting all his energies to composition.

"A Little Organ Book in Memory of Hubert Parry" was published in 1924. The opening inscription reads: "At Sir Hubert Parry's funeral in St. Paul's Cathedral on October 16th 1918, a few of his friends made a small wreath of melodies, which were woven together and played. The pieces in this Book have been written and given by his friends and a few besides, as rather a larger wreath, in loving memory of him. The title of the book was suggested by the original heading on his own piece (which stands as the first of them), "For the Little Organ Book." February 1924

This piece, "Tranquilly," is classic in form, and noble in character.
