Indeed.  I first heard him at the Minster around 1952 or 1953 when he had already been in post for seven years.  Still an indelible memory 66 years later, and high in the shortlist of life’s experiences.

An extraordinary man, an extraordinary musician and an extraordinary life.

I am fortunate to possess a copy of his autobiography:  'Music for a Long While'.

A fascinating read.  I seem to remember a photograph of him in the war holding a piano accordion with which he'd entertain his fellow soldiers - not an officer, surprisingly, but a down-to-earth 'ordinary rank', though he is far from ordinary in reality of course!

In fact, he has led an extraordinary life by all accounts and achieved a great deal.  A man to be admired.
