In Bath he began his studies with Joseph Hewitt and James K. Pyne and was a chorister and later organist at All Saints' Church. Further studies were with James Higgs and Varley Roberts in London and Julius Stockhausen in Frankfurt. He was organist 1880-93 at Ilminster and 1893-6 at Taunton. He moved to Toronto and served 1897-1933 as organist-choirmaster at St James' Anglican Cathedral. He also taught voice, organ, and composition 1897-1919 at the TCM, 1919-24 at the Canadian Academy, and again until 1932, at the TCM. After 1908 he lectured and examined at the University of Toronto. Jeanne Gordon, W.H. Hewlett, Leslie Holmes, and Helen Davies Sherry were among his pupils. He was the founder and the only conductor 1903-28 of the National Chorus, and a founder and the first president 1909-21 of the Canadian Guild of Organists (RCCO). He was an examiner 1923-36 for Bishop's University. His greatest distinction was, perhaps, his work as a choir trainer and perpetuator of the British choral tradition. In 1936 he retired to England. Ham's most substantial work is the cantata The Solitudes of the Passion, performed in Toronto in April 1925. His compositions were published by Anglo-Canadian, Ditson, Gray, Hawkes & Harris, Nordheimer, Novello, and Whaley Royce. SCARCE. N° de réf. du libraire 34272
