A Nigel Hamway concert in Oxford
May 29th at Harris Manchester College, Oxford
The Mervyn Peake admirer, composer, Cambridge graduate, and head of the City venture capital firm, Charterhouse Development Capital, Nigel Hamway, will be giving a concert of his music in the chapel of the Oxford college at the end of May. Written especially to accompany some of my father's nonsense verse, the 100 or so members of the invited audience will also each be handed a copy of the recently published, Collected Poems of Mervyn Peake at the end. It is also hoped that the poem To Maeve will be sung as a solo composition by a baritone in the choir.
