Elizabeth Hardin

1750 - 1780

Elizabeth Hardin, born in England, was appointed organist at St. Peter-le-Poor as a teenager. She likely held this post until her death at age 29. She published "Six Sets of Lessons for the Harpsichord," in 1770, a publication with a long list of subscribers including John Christian Bach. The six sonatas are in typical Classical binary style; five of the six are two-movement works, the other one contains three movements.
