William Henry Squire was a widely admired English cellist at the turn of the twentieth century. Henry Wood praised his technique and tone, and Fauré was so taken with his style that he dedicated the Sicilienne, op. 78, to him. A composer and professor at the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music, Squire wrote a good deal of didatic works for the cello that remain in use today, most notably in the Suzuki cello method books 5 and 6.MUS-07159$25
