Thank you Col, for drawing this to my attention. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it before, though I’m sure John must had had a copy of it here – must look it out. I must also get in touch with Robert, and send him greetings – out of touch for too long.
Correction!! Colin reminds me that I have heard it, back in 2015, in Faversham, played by Edward Kemp-Luck. It was commissioned by George Vass in memory of John. Still, seven years is a long time ago, and my memory is somewhat aged! Anyway, sadly John would not have heard it, unless it percolated through to celestial spheres, which I hope it did. Thank you Robert, and George.
Thank you for posting! I recorded John’s wonderful Elegy for organ earlier in the year too.
Many Happy returns, young Robert!
An extra thankyou to Jonathan Clinch. I will buy the CD asap.
