This is first of all a homage to my first sampleset, which was the OAM Schnitger-Vollenhoven. It still has a warm place in my heart, and it still is a very good sampleset.

Charles Burney was born on April 7, 1726 in Raven Street, Shrewsbury.

Charles, along with his elder brother Richard, attended Shrewsbury Free School from 1737-1739.

In 1739, Charles went to his father in Chester and began studies at Chester Free School.

He had already showed musical ability and continued to learn till 1742, he returned to Shrewsbury to be an assistant to his half-brother James, who was an organist at St Mary's Church.

Though Charles Burney has not been remembered for his composition skills, he did write music consistently from the late 1740s through the 1760s, and occasionally after that.

In 1769, Charles received the degree of DMus from Oxford University.
