Daniel Pinkham (June 5, 1923 – December 18, 2006)

Daniel Rogers Pinkham, Jr. was an American composer, organist, and harpsichordist. His longtime partner was the organist Andrew Paul Holman. "In June 2007 would have marked our 30th year together. We had a great relationship. In July of 2004, we were married at Cambridge City Hall, after a courtship of 27 years. While the first things that may pop into our minds are his laughter and story-telling, the legacy of Daniel Pinkham will be his voluminous catalog of works, his highly successful teaching career, his notable career as a performer, and his tenure of 42 years as Music Director of King’s Chapel where many of new works had their tryouts and first hearing. In our age of specialization, it is increasingly rare to find such a combination — composer, teacher, performer, conductor — successfully executed by one man. Dan was from that great and ancient line of musicians who bridged all these fields. His knowledge as a music historian informed his own works. And he in turn imparted much of that knowledge to his students for more than 60 years." --Andrew Paul Holman at Dan's Memorial Service, January 20, 2007, King's Chapel, Boston.
