Frederick William Wadeley (also spelled Wadely) OBE FRCO (1882 - 1970) was born in Kidderminster in 1882, and was trained at the Royal College of Music and was then organ scholar at Selwyn College, Cambridge.

He was organ scholar at Selwyn College, Cambridge (1900 – 1903), organist of St. Andrew’s Church, Uxbridge (1903-1904), organist of Malvern Priory (1904 - 1910) and finally organist of Carlisle Cathedral (1910 - 1960).

And these notes just in from our member Shingler;
(In this connection (Elgar) it is interesting to note that Wadely married Ethel Muriel Stokes, who was a school friend of Elgar's daughter Carice.
F.W. Wadely's father, William Edward Wadely, received Organ lessons at Worcester Cathedral from E. Spray, from whom Elgar received organ lessons at about the same time. No wonder Dr Wadely is sometimes called 'The Elgar of the North'!)

I find these a pleasant group of rather serious and restrained Postludes and like David said about the previous set not really easy at all. Easy in the scheme of things for a trained organist but not beginner easy. Number 3 is a challenge to sound right with its 2 and 3 note phrases.
