Willan, Healey

(12 October 1880, Balham, London – 16 February 1968, Toronto)
   A composer who taught at Toronto Conservatory (1913–1937) and at the University of Toronto (1937–1950), he was organist and choirmaster at Anglican Church of St. Mary Magdalene (1921–death). His Anglo-Catholicism is reflected in his 14 {}Missae Breves (1928–1963), the 11 Liturgical Motets (1928–1937), and the Evening Canticles (chant-with-fauxbourdons, from 1928). He also wrote six communion services, four full masses, other largescale sacred works (e.g., Te Deum in B-flat, 1935–1937), 34 anthems and 30 hymn-anthems (e.g., O Lord, Our Governour, performed at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, 1953), about 30 motets, over 30 canticles, four sets of organ hymn preludes, and other organ music, of which Introduction, Passacaglia, and Fugue (1916) is particularly well known.
