John Alcock

John Alcock was an Eigheenth Century musician. In 1741 he published a set of Six Suites or easy Lessons for the Harpsichord or Spinnet. At this time he was organist of St Andrews Churh, Plymouth. Shortly afterwards he became organist of Lichfield Cathedral, where he remained for many years.

The six suites are well-written in the style of the period, with flowing melodic lines and some original touches. It is planned in due course to make all of them available on this site.
