1 Response to Croydon Bach Choir to perform Coleridge-Taylor, June 23

  1. Only a few months ago, I bought Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, a Musical Life by Jeffrey Green and paid £60 for it. Money well spent because it answered many of my questions on racism. I look forward to reading A Centenary Celebration.
