Philip Cogan (also Mus. Doc. Philip Cogan, Philip Coogan) was born in 1750 in Cork, Ireland, and spent the majority of his mature career in Dublin. Alongside a high-profile career as organist at several of the largest Catholic churches in Ireland, Cogan had a lucrative career as an orchestral conductor and composer of opera. He co-founded the Irish Musical Fund Society in 1787, which provided financial benefits and security to musicians and their families; the Society maintained records and function well into the 20th century. The Sonatas of Op. 8 were dedicated to Muzio Clementi and published in London in 1800.
