FAIRLAMB, James Remington, musician, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 23 January 1839. He received his first musical instruction from his mother. At the age of twenty, after serving as organist of Churches in" Philadelphia, he went to Paris, where he pursued his instrumental and vocal studies Under Marmontel, Prudent, and Masset, of the then Conservatoire imperiale, and Mine Bockholtz-Falconi. Later he studied under Mabellini in Florence. Subsequently, while U. S. consul at Zurich, he visited Leipsic, Berlin, and Stuttgart. Soon after his return to this country he received from King Karl of Wurtemberg the "great gold medal for art and science." Between 1867 and 1880 he was successively director of the music in different Churches in Washington, D.C. He was called to a similar office in the Church of the Ascension, New York City, and a year later to that of St. Ignatius. His published works, chiefly sacred compositions and songs (the latter including contributions to the St. Nicholas songbook), number nearly a hundred, exclusive of "Valerie," a romantic opera in five acts, which was successfully produced in Washington, and of which a large part is published in sheet form. "Leonello," a grand opera in five acts, and a mass in B fiat, are still in manuscript.
