Category talk:Maccann, John Hill


A John H. McCann is mentioned as appointed to a new organist position in a 1900 issue of, I think, the Musical Times. Which if the same person (MacCann and McCann being close enough for government work) might make fl.1900 reasonable. Is there a definite cause for believing death -in- 1900 for this particular composer (there really needs to be a notion of an 'anchor'- 'this composer = the person who composed the piece I have in front of me' ... and going from there... because proper attribution and dating are tough) Eric 00:24, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
