Those of us who were touched by him, who felt the breeze of his unique presence pass by us and change the atmosphere around us, won’t forget him, ever. A country produces few individuals with his depth of humanity, caring, intelligence and wit. Another like him won’t be coming along any time soon.” —Robert Harris, The Wholenote

Tafelmusik is pleased to be involved in this tribute to one of its earliest champions, producer Neil Crory. Read more about the important role Neil played in Tafelmusik's evolution in Remembering Neil Crory, a blog post by Ivars Taurins.
