Primary trumpeter of England
|Associated acts||Georg Frideric Handel|
In 1745 Snow and his wife Mary had a daughter named Sophia when he was the sergeant-trumpeter to George III. She was trained for a musical career and after she eloped she found fame as Sophia Baddeley.
Snow succeeded John Shore as the primary trumpeter of England during the mid-to-late 18th century, which automatically made him the most respected trumpeter in the country. Many of the trumpet parts in the music of Handel were written specifically for him.
