Hoppé photographed composer Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) on 7 June 1912, less than three months before his tragic death from pneumonia at his home, Aldwick, St Leonard's Road, Croydon, on 1 September 1912, at the age of thirty-seven. Thousands attended his funeral and interment at Bandon Hill cemetery near Croydon. Coleridge Taylor is best remembered for Hiawatha's Wedding Feast (1898), from the poem by Henry Longfellow, and its sequels The Death of Minnehaha (1899) and Hiawatha's Departure (1900).
