The Wulstan Atkins Lecture

Worcester's Forgotten Organist
Sun 23 July

Hugh Blair was a pioneering figure in 1890s musical life in Worcester. He worked closely with Elgar to raise standards of choral singing as well as championing his music. But Blair's lifestyle was unorthodox and the inevitable confrontation with the cathedral establishment led to dismissal after just two years. Kevin Allen examines Blair’s life in this fascinating portrait of a forgotten musical legacy.

Supported by Katharine O’Carroll, Robert and Sherill Atkins.
