Arnold, Samuel

▪ British composer
born Aug. 10, 1740, London
died Oct. 22, 1802, London
 composer whose 180-part edition of George Frideric Handel (Handel, George Frideric) (1787–97), although unfinished and deemed defective by later scholarship, was the earliest attempt to publish a composer's complete works.

      Educated at Chapel Royal, Arnold became composer to Covent Garden Theatre; his first annual production was The Maid of the Mill (1765). Subsequent positions were as music director of the Theatre Royal in the Haymarket (1777), organist and composer to the Chapel Royal (1783), conductor of the Academy of Ancient Music (1789), and organist at Westminster Abbey (1793). His compositions include sonatas, symphonies, and oratorios, as well as ballad operas, farces, and pantomimes. His Cathedral Music (1790), a collection of service music, was an important supplement to William Boyce's Cathedral Music.
