HENSCHEL, SIR GEORGE (1850-), English musician (see 13.302), from 1905-8 taught at the Institute of Musical Art, N.Y. He was knighted in 1914. A Mass in eight parts a cappella was first sung in 1916. In 1907 he published Personal Recollections of Brahms and 12 years later Musings and Memories of a Musician. Henschel's very highly developed sense of interpretation and style made him an ideal concert singer, while he was no less distinguished as accompanist.
