Cobb was educated at Marlborough College (1849–57) and Tri­ni­ty Col­lege, Cam­bridge, (BA 1861, MA 1864). He also studied music in Dresden, and helped George Macfarren in reforming the musical curriculum at Cambridge. A devout man, Clark considered entering the ministry, but decided against it.

Clark composed a setting of Psalm 62 for Solo Voices, Chorus and Orchestra, commissioned for the North East Choirs Association Festival at Ripon Ca­thed­ral in 1892; seven services, including the Service in C for Men’s Voices, written for St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle; anthems; the motet Surge Illuminare; glees; 20 settings for Barrack Room Ballads by Rudyard Kipling; and a Suite for Violin.
