Hugh Reginald Haweis(1838-1901), Church of England clergyman and writer on music
Sitter in 9 portraits
Ordained in 1862 and became Curate of St James's, Marylebone in 1866. Haweis' unconventional methods of conducting the service, combined with his short stature and lively manner, soon attracted crowded congregations, and his services remained fashionable for thirty-five years. He was so successful that he sometimes booked St James's Hall, Regent Street, for Sunday morning services, and he received many invitations to preach elsewhere. Haweis made frequent contributions to periodicals including The Times, the Pall Mall Gazette and the Echo. His books on music included Music and Morals (1871), My Musical Life (1884) and Old Violins (1898).
