William Inglott (Composer)

Born: 1554, Norwich, UK

<em>Died:</em> Norwich, UK

Nationality: English

William Inglott, also written Inglot was an English organist and composer of the Elizabethan era, mostly associated with Norwich Cathedral. His father Edmund Inglott was the organist at Norwich Cathedral, and William retained a strong connection to the cathedral for the rest of his career – first as a chorister (1567–8), later as Lay Clerk from 1576 and Organist from 1587 to 1591.

He moved to Hereford Cathedral as Master of the Choristers from 1597 until some time after 1610, but returned to Norwich as organist in 1611, replacing the composer Thomas Morley.

William Inglott held the position until his death in December 1621, by which time he was 67. His painted memorial on a pillar in Norwich Cathedral records he was buried on 31 December of that year.
