Robert H Young

Born in Santa Cruz, California, April 20, 1923, Robert H. Young attended public schools there until his enlistment in the United States Marine Corps where he served from 1941 to 1945. His collegiate career included a Bachelor of Music degree from Otterbein College, Master of Music from Northwestern University, and a Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Southern California. He co-authored The Anthem in England and America. He was named Distinguished Music Alumnus at Otterbein College in 1997 for his contributions to the music profession.

After serving as Minister of Music in several California churches, Dr. Young joined the faculty of Baylor University in 1962 where he remained until retirement in 1993. Through his thirty-year tenure, he was in turn Chairman of Church Music, Chairman of Vocal Studies, Chairman of Graduate Studies, and director of the Baylor Chamber Singers, an ensemble he founded and that attained a national reputation for excellence under his guidance. It was his work with the Baylor Chamber Singers and the beautiful performance venue of the Armstrong Browning Library that provided much of the inspiration for his numerous choral compositions.

Dr. Young retired after twenty-seven years as Choirmaster at St. Paul's Episcopal Church (Waco). He was Conductor Emeritus of the Baylor Chamber Singers. Active in TMEA, ACDA and TCDA, he held the office of Vice President of the Church/Community Division of TCDA from 1994-1996. As an award-winning member of ASCAP, Dr. Young had more than 100 choral compositions published by some of the most prestigious publishing companies in the United States, including Gentry Publications, Alliance Music Publications, Carl Fischer, Colla Voce Publications, and National Music Publishers.
