The entry in Cathedral Music, Volume 2 (William Boyce) reads:
Jeremiah Clark, was one of the Children of the Chapel Royal, and in 1693, succeeded Dr. John Blow as Almoner, and Master of the Choristers, to the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, London: He was also Organist and Vicar-Choral of the said Church. On July the 7th, 1700, he was appointed a Gentleman Extraordinary of the Chapel Royal, and on May the 25th, 1704, he was admitted as Joint-Organist of the said Chapel, together with William Croft.--- He died in 1707.
His compositions are remarkably pleasing, and natural.
