James Hamilton Siree Clarke (25 January 1840 - 9 July 1912), better known as Hamilton Clarke was an English conductor, composer and organist.
Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians said of Clarke, "a prolific composer of church music, organ solos, songs, operettas and orchestral works... he also published a useful Manual of Orchestration as well as some fiction and music criticism". However, Clarke is best remembered not for his own compositions or writings, but rather as an associate of Arthur Sullivan, for whom he arranged music and compiled overtures for some of the Savoy Operas including Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado and The Sorcerer.
