Rung open to celebrate the life of John A Purdey of Tywardreath and St Stephen in Brannel. John was a very talented Cornish composer of long length Call Changes ensuring they were always ‘true’. The spliced composition used tonight included his first piece from the 1970’s, Peal No.1 and the second half being ‘all the music’, Epiphany. This gentleman will be greatly missed in our Art. RIP John.

This performance was rung In memoriam — John A Purdey
