Jane Spurr - 'A Song of Farewell: Charles Proctor 1906 - 1996'
Charles Proctor’s musical life was long and varied, encompassing the beginnings of a career as a concert pianist, continuing as a conductor, organist, composer, teacher, lecturer, writer, examiner and adjudicator. He touched the lives of countless thousands of people over a period of some sixty years. At Trinity College of Music, generations of students benefitted not only from his training but, more importantly, from his inspiration, as, by his own example, he instilled in them a dedication to the Art of Music. This book is a small tribute to him from one of those students. Pbk price £9.99
Peter Ryan - 'The Green Fields of Africa'
