Patrick Piggott (1915-1990)
Humphrey Searle (1915-1982)

The ‘big’ commemoration of 2015 must be Humphrey Searle’s centenary. However, of considerable note is the prolific early Victorian composer Henry Hugo Pierson. Readers will notice the extraordinary number of organ and choral composers who celebrate 150 years – Alfred Hollins, William Wolstenholme, R.R. Terry and E.H. Lemare. I wonder how these anniversaries will be celebrated during 2015.
