The Organ Music of Emma Louise Ashford
Emma Louise Hindle was born into a musical family in Newark, Delaware in 1850. Her family was constantly moving around and at the age of twelve she became the organist of the Episcopal Church in Kewanee, Illinois. At the age of fourteen she was organist of the Episcopal Church in Seymour, Connecticut. At the age of seventeen she married John Ashford, an engineer from Bath, England. They moved first to live in Chicago, where Mrs. Ashford was a soloist in Dudley Buck's choir at St. James Episcopal Church. They later moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where John Ashford was for several decades a faculty member at Vanderbilt University. Mrs. Ashford was a prominent part of the musical life of Vanderbilt University, as well as organist of a number of Nashville churches including Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral. Many of her organ compositions appeared between 1898 and 1920 in the bi-monthly periodical The Organist of which she was editor. She died in Nashville in 1930. A video of E. L. Asford's Fanfare in G minor may be found here.
