Harry Bramma- 75th birthday celebration
OUR PRESIDENT DR HARRY BRAMMA - 75
On Friday 11 November a wonderful celebration was held at All Saints Margaret Street to mark the 75th birthday of Dr Harry Bramma, who had been Director of Music there.
His successor, Paul Brough, had the great idea of recording a CD of Harry's compositions to be launched on his birthday (Priory Records CD1060), and during the evening the choir sang several items from the CD, interspersed with witty and grateful tributes on his musical career from Lindsay Gray, Harry's successor as Director of the RSCM, and the Very Revd Nicholas Frayling, Dean of Chichester and a long-standing holiday companion of Harry.
a £75 Nicolas wine voucher to mark the occasion, which he
has graciously acknowledged.
