a Victorian doctor of music, composer and for forty years Musician in Ordinary to her Majesty Queen Victoria. Sellé was awarded a Lambeth Music Doctorate by Archbishop Sumner in 1857. The 1850s to the 1860s were his most prolific as a composer. They are relatively short pieces for the piano and organ. The piano compositions are light and easily accessible in style,essentially salon pieces. His work illustrates his love of the composers of the First Viennese School and places Sellé within the romantic tradition of English music.
