Charles Wood (composer)
Charles Wood (June 15 1866–July 12 1926) was an Irish composer and teacher. Born in Armagh, he studied at the Royal College of Music and University of Cambridge, where he later taught harmony and counterpoint, becoming professor of music in 1924. Like his better-known colleague, Charles Villiers Stanford, he is chiefly remembered for his Anglican church music. He also wrote six string quartets, co-edited three books of carols and was co-founder (in 1904) of the Irish Folk Song Society . His pupils included Ralph Vaughan Williams and Herbert Howells.
