Born: 8 December 1789

John Fawcett was a composer of church music in north-west England in the early nineteenth century: working in his early life in KendalLink to the English Wikipedia article, he wrote nonconformist psalmody in a style related to that of James Leach. Fawcett later moved to BoltonLink to the English Wikipedia article. His works changed in style through his lifetime, reflecting a broader shift in church music during this period from the tenor-led psalmody of Leach and his contemporaries to the Victorian choral society movement.
