William Duncombe (ca. 1736-1738 – 30 November 1818, or 1819)[1] was an English composer. He was organist in Kensington.[2]

He is mainly known by a few small piano pieces (especially a Sonatina in C Major and the Fanfare or Fanfare Minuet) that are still reprinted in pedagogical collections.[3] They are probably excerpts of the Progressive lessons for the harpsichord and piano forte, published in 1778 (or 1785).

Duncombe is frequently confused with the writer William Duncombe (1690 – 1769).

Works[edit]

  • First Book of Progressive Lessons for the Harpsichord and Piano Forte — London : J. Bland, n.d. [1778]
  • Second Book of Twelve Progressive Lessons for the Harpsichord or Piano Forte — London : J. Bland, n.d. [1778]
  • The Favorite Air, of God save the King, with variations for two performers on one piano forte, or harpsichord — London, [1792]
  • What tho' the sun withdraws his ray — London, n.d. [1760?][4]
