A few months back, we called Maureen Forrester a celebrated soprano. Mass outcry? Nope. Not a trilJ! The flip side: in November Larry Beckwith's Choral Page contained a passing reference to the great Healey Willan. In a burst of overenthusia5tic editing we amplified the reference into "Healey Willan , the great Scottish immigrant." Well , yo~' d have thought we'd said "Jamaica's Donovan Bailey!" Neatly encapsulating the responses was a letter from EM! Classics' Brandon Bayer. After reminding us of Willan's own comment on the subject ("I'm English by birth, Irish by extraction, Canadian by adoption and Scotch by absorption") Mr Bayer went on to say For a person who lived more than 54 years in Toronto and called himself a Canadian, I think we can drop the immigrant bit every time he's mentioned. (When was the last time you saw lrving Berlin referred to by the Americans as "that great immigrant from Russia. ") ... And by the way, Feb 16 1998 is the 30th anniversary of his death--surely worth some editorial notice. Duly noted! ONLY COMPREHENSIVE MONTHLY CLASSICAL CONTEMPORARY CONCERT LISTING SOURCE
