Edward Miller (1735 – 1807) was an English organist and composer. His most famous tunes are Galway and Rockingham. Apprenticed to his father, a pavior (a layer of paving stones and the like), he ran away to study music. At one time he was a flautist in Handel’s orchestra. He played the organ for 50 years at Doncaster Church, and composed hymn tunes and harpsichord sonatas. Cambridge University awarded him a doctorate in 1786. His works include:
The Psalms of David Set to New Music, 1774
Elements of Thorough-bass and Composition, 1787
The Psalms of David for the Use of Parish Churches, 1790
Thoughts on the Present Performance of Psalmody, 1791
