Canada mourns a nurturer of musicians

Canadian musicians have written in to inform us of the death of Neil Crory, an influential producer at CBC but, more than that, a guide to artists at a delicate stage in their development.

Michael Vincent has written a lovely tribute here.

  • Neil was an extraordinary man: an important CBC producer, writer, adviser to artists and more. He was one of the most generous + kindest people I ever met. He was also so knowledgeable (an encyclopedic knowledge in fact) of all things classical music (especially opera-vocal). He imparted his wisdom not with snobbery, but in such a quiet way, you never felt stupid or belittled if you didn’t know something. He had respect for people, and a unspoken understanding of people’s sensitivities. He died way too young. Thank you Norman for including this item in Slipped Disc.
