Burnell of Bromsgrove (1871-1959) : Yorkshire Man: Bromsgrove Musician Paperback / softback
This book tells the story of Isaiah Burnell, a man of humble Yorkshire origins, who for almost fifty years taught, developed, encouraged and made music in his adopted home town of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.
He often corresponded with Edward Elgar and their friendship developed to such an extent that Elgar made surprise appearances at performances of his works.
His impressive contribution to the life and music of the town was achieved through his work with Bromsgrove Musical Club.
He was Director of Music at Bromsgrove School for 25 years and his best known work is the anthem Surely the Lord is in this place which he wrote for the dedication of Bromsgrove School's Memorial Chapel in May 1931.
