John Reed (1645, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England - 1692, Winchester, England) was an English composer and organist. A native of Lincoln, England, John Reading was named vicar of Lincoln Cathedral in 1667 and master of the Choristers in 1670. He was organist at Winchester Cathedral from 1675-1681. Here he set the college's Latin graces to music as well as the school song Dulce domum. Several of his organ works were included in a collection which was completed by Daniel Roseingrave. He also composed songs, theatre music, and part of a set of responses (now in the Anglican church repertoire in a form completed by modern editors). He later was organist at Winchester College. Reading died in Winchester.
