The Eric Thiman Collection

by
25 July 2014

THE new Music Library in the recently refurbished Archbishop's Palace at Southwell Minster will soon house the Eric Thiman Collection, which will eventually include a copy of all Thiman's 600 compositions, other memorabilia, and sets of his choral pieces. Guy Turner, with Frances Thiman, niece of the composer, and Paul Hale, Rector Chori of Southwell Minster, is setting it up, and would be glad to hear from readers with an interest in Thiman's music, or who possess copies, or even manuscripts, of his music that might become part of the collection. It will be launched on 3 October, with a lunchtime recital, and evensong featuring Thiman's music. Although Eric Thiman was a major figure in mid-20th century British musical life, and arguably the single most important contributor to music for the Nonconformist churches at that time, his music is less well-known today.
