To bring the forgotten songs of William Busch back into the world

by Julia Cornaby Busch in Norwich, England, United Kingdom

I am endeavouring to bring the songs of my father back into the world after being forgotten for so long.  I have the opportunity to record these together with songs of Gerald Finzi, Michael Head and Elizabeth Poston and to be sung by Roderick Williams, Diana Moore and Robin Tritschler together with the pianist John Reid.  We are all excited about this project and to go forward I have turned to Crowdfunder to make this all happen.

It is always a cruel injustice when a telnet is cut off at the moment of recognition and when repayment for all the hardship years would have been round the corner.  As John Amis said in his programme "Forgotten Reputations" recorded in 1989 for BBC3 "of all the musicians of the 30's and 40's William Busch is the most likely to be forgotten".  He was only 43 when he died.  And now, with your help I am going to change that and I am thrilled to be able to bring this project to fruition.

For donations of £40 I would like to offer the complete CD and thanks again for making this come true.
