GEORGE'S CENTENARY CELEBRATIONS
George was born on February 28th 1917 and 2017 will see a number of commemorative events
February 27th: Giles Dawson gave an illustrated talk "Celebrating George Malcolm" which launched an exhibition drawn from George's extensive archives housed at Balliol's Archive and Manuscript Centre.
Decca Records will be issuing 3 CDs featuring George, drawn from their catalogue.
BBC Radio 3 'Music Matters', Feb 19th, included an item on George and the following week he was 'Artist of the Week'.
UPDATE: The exhibition at Westminster Cathedral was launched on May 9th by Sir Nicholas Kenyon. Amongst the distinguished attendees were organist Nicolas Kynaston, violinist Christopher Hirons and singers John Elwes, Ian Partridge and Jeremy White. Giles Dawson, Nicolas Kynaston and Martin Baker shared appreciations and anecdotes about the great man. Beforehand the Westminster Choristers sang Britten's Missa Brevis and it was notable that the two original soloists in the first performance (and Decca recording) were also in attendance: John Elwes (then Hahessy) and Michael Ronayne. Thanks to Giles Dawson and the Friends of Westminster Cathedral for organising such a memorable occasion. (Item below from Oremus Magazine, June 2017.)
