Died: 14 July 1621
"Edmund Hooper was Master of the Choristers of Westminster Abbey at the beginning of the seventeenth century, and also organist and one of the choir of the Chapel Royal. From the books of the Abbey it appears that he was sometimes employed to mend the organ, and also in picking new song books. He died in 1621, and is buried in the cloisters adjoining the Abbey in which he was employed." His wife, Margaret, was buried nearby in 1651 (Rimbault 1844).
Edmund Hooper contributed the harmonizations of several psalm-tunes in Thomas Este's Whole Booke of Psalmes, With Their Wonted Tunes (1592, 1604, etc.).
