Blessed City - Life & Works Of Edward C Bairstow

Composer Francis Jackson
Voice/Instrument BOOK

Edward Bairstow, for 33 years Organist and Choirmaster of York Minster and for 17 years professor of Music at Durham University, was one of the best known musicians of his day. His achievements as exponent, composer, conductor and above all, teacher, were acknowledged throughout the English-speaking world. A formidable character, who dealt ruthlessly with mediocrity, he nevertheless inspired intense loyalty, admiration and affection, and his influence was far-reaching. This book published 50 years after his death, includes five chapters of his unfinished autobiography.

This second (revised) edition was issued in paperback in February 1997. Reprinted in 2003.

340 pages including black and white photographs, music extracts and drawings.
