In a Company of Fiddlers
Author: Rob Ritchie
What was it about a performance more than 50 years ago that launched the singing career of the great Margaret Calloway? How does a farm girl from rural Ontario manage to perform Handel’s Messiah with such depth and authority that it becomes the standard by which all other renditions are measured? Is musical genius a matter of technique or passion?
In a Company of Fiddlers presents the reader with a rich tapestry of interwoven storylines involving music, architecture, social conventions, and the price we pay to fit into the times and spaces in which we live.
