YOUNG, Alfred, clergyman, born in Bristol, England, 21 January, 1831. He was graduated at Princeton in 1848, and at the medical department of the University of New York in 1852, after which he practised medicine for a year. In 1850 he became a convert to the Roman Catholic faith, and after ecclesiastical studies at the Seminary of St. Sulpice in Paris, France, he was ordained a priest of that church on 24 August, 1856. He was vice-president of Seton Hall college in 1856-'7, rector of the Roman Catholic church in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1857-'60, and of the church in Trenton, New Jersey, in 1860-'1. Father Young then entered the community of the Paulists in New York city. His name has been particularly associated with the reformation of church music, and the beginning in the United States of an effort toward the restoration of the Gregorian chant for the entire services of his church. This practice was introduced in the Paulist church in 1870, and has since continued to be a, feature in its services. He has both written and lectured in favor of it, and it is being gradually adopted elsewhere. At present he is engaged in the advocacy of a further reform tending toward congregational singing. Besides magazine articles on sundry religious topics, and a series of epigrammatic poems on scriptural texts in the "Catholic World," he has published "Tile Complete Sodality Hymn-Book" (New York, 1863)" new ed., entitled " Catholic Hymns and Canticles" (1888); "The Office of Vespers" (t869); "The Catholic Hymnal" (1884)" and "Carols for a Merry Christmas and a Joyous Easter" (2 vols., 1885-'6).His brother, EDWARD (1818-1870), was a jeweler, and published in 1859 "The Ladye Lillian and other Poems."
