Colin Hand (1929–2015) — Contemplation (2005) for organ

English composer Colin Hand (1929–2015) studied organ with Melville Cook
and earned a MusB at Trinity College, Dublin. He spent fifteen years as a lecturer in further education and another fifteen years (part-time) as an examiner for Trinity College of Music, London. Hand’s compositions comprise choral, orchestral and chamber music, and numerous educational works. His doctoral research on the Tudor composer, undertaken in the 1970s, resulted in “John Taverner: His life and music” (1978). Hand was a member of the committee who worked on the New Anglican Edition of the widely-used hymnal “Hymns Old and New.” He has a particular interest in encouraging pianists to take up the organ and he produced numerous resources (primarily for Kevin Mayhew Ltd.) to assist in this purpose.
