William Walond (Oxford, 1719 – 1768, was an English composer and organist.
After four years as Assistant Organist of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, Walond graduated from Christ Church, Oxford in 1757.
His setting of Alexander Pope's Ode on St Cecilia's Day had served as his exercise.
He also published two sets of voluntaries for the organ or harpsichord (1752 and 1758) and the anthem Not unto us, O Lord.
Of his fourteen children, his eldest son William Walond Jr. (c. 1750-1836) became the last 'Organist' of Chichester Cathedral, before the post was merged with 'Master of the Choristers' in 1801.
