Henry Hackett (1872-1940) was an organist at churches in Birmingham, West Bromwich, Burton-on-Trent and Bideford. He was a regular contributor to the journal 'The Organ' He composed anthems, communion settings piano pieces and songs as well as a number of organ compositions which were published both in England and the USA.

Last year at St. Stephen Walbrook in London, I performed Hackett's Choeur Triomphale in D as the final piece After the recital Henry Hackett's grandson (who had travelled all the way from Scotland to hear the performance) gave me a copy of the unpublished manuscript of this Passacaglia and Fugue which was composed in 1932. As it has never been performed (apart from perhaps by the composer himself) he asked if I would mind looking at it to see if I could make something of the sometimes, illegible scribblings. This is the result.....
