an English composer, organist, singer and conductor. Hayes's musical language combined a respect for late Baroque idioms as practiced by composers such as George Frideric Handel, together with a clear grasp of early classical styles. He was also interested in the music of earlier generations and added considerably to the wide-ranging music library inherited from his father. His works show an imaginative approach to instrumentation: from 1763 he made frequent use of clarinets, and his six keyboard concertos were the first published in England to offer the option of performance on the early piano.
