Baroque American composer and pacifist from the classical music parody album Baroque Americana by "The Concertgebluff Authaus Orchestra Society." The music was really by Walter Raim (of folk group The Harvesters) and Stan Green, and likely released in late 1966. The liner notes were written by professional liner notist Tom Carlson.

A Bostonian, Makepeace originally composed "Watch It Out, Old Mac Donald" for King George III's birthday. But he later scratched out the dedication, and hoped his tune would be the theme for the American Revolution.
