Norman Cocker & Douglas Steele


Recommended Posts

As both of these have been under discussion here lately....

I got to know Douglas Steele a little when I was organ scholar at Manchester Cathedral in around 1990.  He was about 80 then, a really lovely man with a huge enthusiasm for music of all kinds.  He kindly gave me quite a bit of his old music - none of his own compositions - but it did include Norman Cocker's own copy of the Reubke Sonata hand dated 1908 (the original edition, obviously).  Detailed registrations in pencil, and a list of all the dates on which he performed it (10 times between 1928 and 1939).
