17681831
an American composer, singer, teacher, and music publisher. Born in London, he studied organ and in 1793 he traveled to America with a stage company. Carr's best known orchestral work was the Federal Overture (1794), composed for theatrical audiences. He published many of his own art songs, and was perhaps the first American composer to set a Shakespeare text to music, and his setting of Scott's Hymn to the Virgin (1810) is generally considered one of the finest early American songs.
