(b ?Cambridge, 1599; d 1657). English church musician and composer, son of John Hilton (i). He took the Cambridge degree of Mus.B. in 1616, and from 1628 was organist of St Margaret's Church, Westminster. Many more works can be attributed to him than to his father; in addition to the disputed anthems and canticles, he wrote canons, partsongs, and consort music. There are also solo songs and dialogues by him, cast in a more modern idiom.
