Hoyle, John (DNB00)
HOYLE, JOHN (d. 1797?), was author of a dictionary of musical terms entitled 'Dictionarium Musica [sic]; being a complete Dictionary or Treasury of Music,' London, 1770; republished, with a new title, in 1790 and 1791. The work was pronounced 'short and incomplete' by the 'Critical Review' for February 1791. Hoyle is said to have died in 1797.
