Rev, H. C. Burnham, Cong.Orat.

A loss to the London Oratory was briefly chronicled in the CATHOLIC HERALD last week, that of the Rev. Henry Charles Burnham, who from 1931 until 1934 was Superior of the community in Brompton Road. The Oratorians, as is widely known, cherish a special affection for and interest in religious music: but for St. Philip Ned we might never have known the word " Oratorio "; and Fr. Burnham found his main work at South Kensington in the post of Prefect of Music rather than as a preacher or a writer.

Born in Wellingborough, Fr. Burnham was connected, as a young man, with a firm of solicitors in that town, and became a junior partner. His religious upbringing was with the Church of England. After his conversion he developed a vocation for the priesthood, and entering the Oratory in 1893 was ordained four years later.
