Born: June 1823

Died: 12 April 1893


Theodore Distin was born in Brighton, England. His father John Distin was a famous trumpet player and bandmaster. He first studied French horn and, when he was young, the family formed a touring quintet of saxhorns. The group was very popular and performed at Windsor Castle and several German courts. He studied singing and became a baritone in the Pyne Harrison Company. He was a member of Lincoln’s Inn Chapel Choir and taught singing. His brothers had a very successful business making fine-quality brass and military instruments. His compositions include service music, songs and part-songs. His part-song “Jack Horner” won the 1879 Huddersfield prize.
