17151769, Dec 6
an English composer. He gained an M.A. at St. John's College, Cambridge in 1745 and was a chaplain to the Princess Dowager of Wales. He composed three sets of six concertos, modelled on George Frideric Handel's and composed the glee, "Fill, fill, fill the glass". Felton's concertos were modelled on those of Handel, whom the amateur held in admiration. Burney relates that Handel was asked, while in the barber's hands, to allow the mention of his name in the list of subscribers to Felton's Second Set.
