EDWARD C. BAIRSTOW, for 33 years Organist and Choirmaster of York Minster and for 17 years Professor of Music at Durham University, was one of the best known musicians of his day. His achievements as exponent, composer, conductor and above all, teacher, were acknowledged throughout the English-speaking world. A formidable character, who dealt ruthlessly with mediocrity, he nevertheless inspired intense loyalty, admiration and affection, and his influence was far-reaching. This book, published 50 years after his death, includes five chapters of his unfinished autobiography.

 

FRANCIS JACKSON was a chorister at York Minster under Bairstow and was his pupil in the skills necessary for an organist and choirmaster. He succeeded his teacher at the age of 29, becoming well known as an organ recitalist and broadcaster. Since leaving the Minster post after 37 years in 1982, he has made several CD’s including his complete organ works (some 30 titles) and continues both to give recitals and to compose. His opus numbers are now well into their second hundred.
