Harry Bramma at All Saints, Margaret Street

On Friday we went to All Saints, Margaret Street for a musical celebration of Harry Bramma's 75th Birthday. Bramma was musical director at All Saints for many years, and his successor Paul Brough conducted the choir in a number of Bramma's beautifully wrought pieces, along with some Byrd. Interspersed with this were addresses from Lindsay Gray (Director of the Royal School of Church Music) and Nicholas Frayling (Dean of Chichester) which covered Bramma's myriad activities including his influential time as director of the Royal School of Church Music. Brough and his choir have recorded a disc of Bramma's music for Priory Records and the event concluded with a glass of wine, a piece of a huge birthday cake and a chance to buy the new record.
