This composition of a Postlude for Organ in E Major was awarded a 1904 Henry Cart Prize of £10. It was composed by James Lyon (1872-1949). Initially, musically self-taught, Lyon went on to Oxford to achieve a MusDoc and became a music lecturer, examiner, writer and prolific composer (including 4 operas).

A handwritten copy of this score is also held by the Company, but it is by a professional copyist (see stamp on the final page) rather than in the Composer's hand. It is possible that this copy was made by the Company (to be held) before the original submission was returned to the composer or sent to the Publisher.
