It was with great sadness that Hemyock Singers heard of the death of Norman Leighton just before the Pump went to press. Norman was a fine musician specialising in the violin. Prior to moving to Hemyock he had been invoved with numerous chiors and orchestras. As a past Musical Director of Singers his wisdom, knowledge and dry wit lightened many a rehearsal. We send our love and deepest condolences to his wife Alice.
