John Camidge (ca. 1734-1803) became a chorister at York Minster at an early age, and studied organ with Maurice Greene in London. His son Matthew became a well-known organist and composer. (See Vivace Press VIV 318 Matthew Camidge's Six Concertos for organ, Op. 13.) The style of the lessons glances back toward the Baroque period. They feature tuneful melodies, energetic rhythms and skillful crafting of Baroque dance forms and ornamentation.
