1721, Dec 91805, Apr 28
an English-born American organist, harpsichordist, teacher and composer. Pelham was born in London. His father, also named Peter Pelham, was an engraver and an artist. Around 1730 the Pelhams immigrated to Boston. In 1744 Pelham became first organist of Trinity Church in Boston. Although several collections he compiled of music by other composers are extant, almost none of his own music survives, save for a short harpsichord minuet.
