John Glen


Biographical info

John Glen (1833-1904) was a collector and publisher of Scottish music. He was a man of strong opinions, who seldom hesitated to express them in print. (Alburger) At his death, his comprehensive collection of printed editions and MSS was acquired by Lady Dorothea Stuart Murray (Lady D. Ruggles-Brise) who gave it to GB-En. The collection was on loan to the GB-Lbl until GB-En (est. 1925) was ready to receive it. (Gore) The Glen Collection of Scottish Dance Music was reprinted in 2001 by HMT without basslines, but with the full commentary and biographies.
