Manx music continued to flourish on the island with the steady growth of Methodism, although the state of singing in the Anglican Church appeared to decline following the introduction of the organ, which, Bazin comments, 'often overpowered the congregation, discouraged hearty singing and led to some criticism in the pages of the Manx newspapers' (p. 1). Here, the person's role in musical life on the island is described, when and where they lived, education, family life, membership of choirs and societies, profession, and denomination (usually Anglican or Methodist), with a note of the source of this information.
