Lutz, (Wilhelm) Meyer

Lutz, (Wilhelm) Meyer, German-born English organist, conductor, and composer; b. Männer Stadt, near Kissingen, 1822?; d. London, Jan. 31, 1903. He studied with his father and later attended the Univ. of Würzburg, where his mentors in music were Eisenhöfer and Keller. In 1848 he settled in England and was an organist in churches in Birmingham, Leeds, and London. After conducting at the Surrey Theatre in London (1850-55), he was active as a conductor of touring theater companies. In 1869 he became music director of the Gaiety Theatre in London, for which he composed much light music. His barn-dance music for the pas de quatre from his burlesque Faust Up-to-Date (London, Oct. 30, 1888) was popular.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
