Biography

As a boy he was a pupil of William Croft at the Chapel Royal, and of Johann Christoph Pepusch. Most of his compositions were for the theatre and for the London pleasure gardens. He never developed beyond his early-adopted Handelian style: Charles Burney's assessment was that "This honest Englishman preferred the style of his own country to that of any other so much, that he never staggered his belief of its being the best in the world, by listening to foreign artists or their productions". Howard helped William Boyce prepare his Cathedral Music (three-volume anthology).
