Manuscript score of a setting of the Magnificat by Harry Drew (New College 1872), no date. He appears to have studied music at Oxford in ca.1887-88, and was associated with Balliol College*, but the college has no record of his membership; Faculty of Music recordkeeping for the period is idiosyncratic. The score is assumed to be in the composer's hand and is a fair copy, perhaps submitted as part of a degree; the cover title clearly associates him with Balliol College. It is not known who made the annotations or why. Balliol has no other information about Harry Drew.
