Peter Hurford OBE


Recommended Posts

It's passed many people by, but I would like to wish Peter Hurford many happy returns on his 80th birthday today, St Cecilia's Day. I remember him with much fondness as an inspirational teacher and a consummate performer. His insistence on musical line remains forever in my memory when playing or directing a choir.

I have to concur with this. Peter Hurford's first rendition of the complete Bach organ works were a staple diet as an early teen when I first started as an organist (and builder!). Although they went out of fashion later, I still ocassionally put the records on. Hurford was an inspirition to a young player, and I suspect I may not have continued without his playing to aspire to. Many Happy Returns Dr Hurford!
