Sowerby (May 1, 1895-July 7, 1968), American composer and church
musician, was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music in 1946,
and was often called the "Dean of American church music" in the
early to mid 20th century. Sowerby was born in Grand Rapids,
Michigan, where he began to compose at the age of ten. Early
recognition came when his violin concerto was premiered in 1913 by
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. In 1921 he was awarded the Rome
Prize, the first composer to receive this.
