CLARA A. MACIRONE

Clara Angela Macirone (1821-1914) was born in London, the daughter of Italian musicians. Her father was a singer and mother a pianist. She studied singing and piano at Royal Academy of Music. She built a reputation as a pianist, then as a teacher at the RAM, developing a system of music teaching that earned recognition by the eminent composer Sir George A. Macfarren. She was also active as a composer, publishing simply as C. A. Macirone. Most of her compositions are part-songs. These achieved wide recognition through performances by massed choirs at the Crystal Palace and at Exeter Hall. Her part-song “Sir Knight” was the first music heard by Queen Victoria over the telephone in 1878. She died in London.
