Hugh Blair was in his 30s when he left Worcester. What of the remainder of his life ? Was he active as an organist and/or composer ?

 

From John Henderson's A Directory of Composers for Organ

"In 1897, after 3 years, he left Worcester due to problems with alcohol. Subsequently organist of Holy Trinity, Marylebone and borough organist at Battersea Town Hall, his own pieces include . . ." He then lists about 40 organ compositions (some single pieces, some collections) with publication dates from 1899, 1907, 1909, 1910, 1911, 1912, 1913, 1916, 1920, 1924, 1925, 1926 and 1932 (the year of his death).

When doing some research recently (see here: http://www.mander-organs.com/discussion/in...showtopic=3036), I discovered that he had written considerably more than we ever knew. Some pieces were issued as supplements to Musical Times.
