David’s friends are raising money to give David’s children, Lydia and Thomas, the opportunities they now won’t get from their Dad. Visit www.GoFundMe.com, and search for David Coram.
It is with the greatest sadness that we announce the death of David Coram on 28 January 2019. See more on the page ‘Our Music Team’. When funeral details are known, they will be posted here, and it seems likely there will also be a memorial service at St Peter’s Hammersmith, West London, where David was a much-loved Director of Music.
Travelled to Wimborne Minster on Friday 31 August for the wedding of Margaret James (92) and Robert Cave (91). They are Britain’s oldest newly-weds, and a full Minster church wished them well. Google their names for more details and lovely pictures! (The Michael James Music Trust supports two Laudemus! scholars each year.)
And the final piece of the jigsaw: Stinsford have confirmed us for Wednesday 18 July.The demolished musicians’ gallery was reinstated in the 1990s and now houses a little continuo-style organ in place of the instruments which would have been familiar in Thomas Hardy’s day. Will we fit up there, I wonder? And can we source music such as Hardy’s contemporaries would have heard? Watch this space!
