Jim Treloar Posted August 6, 2010 Share Posted August 6, 2010 Just wondering if any member of this board can throw any light on a matter which has been discussed here in Chester recently, but with no conclusion. Apparently Tournemire's first wife, named Alice Taylor, was born in Chester, they married in 1903. The possibility being discussed is whether he ever actually came here, this has been mentioned to Roger Fisher, but he didn't know, in fact was unaware of the Chester connection. One fact which has come to light is that Tournemire's non-music library did finish up in Chester with somebody who had some sort of connection, in fact it is believed to be still here. If any one has any information I should be interested to hear it. It was coincidental that his second wife was also called Alice, as you probably know she came to St Albans up to the 1990s for the Tournemire prize at the festival.
