A 20/20 Legacy: the centenary of the Northern School of Music


Ida Carroll, Annie Warburton
Northern School Of Music (NSM)

This is a speech given by Ida Gertrude Carroll at the start of the spring term January 1958, beginning with the hymn Jerusalem and a prayer.

She talks about the upcoming visit of Alan Wicks who is giving a series of lectures, at the time he was at Manchester Cathedral but he then became the organist for Canterbury Cathedral in 1961, a role he would continue for nearly 30 years.

She also discusses her hopes of arranging a visit from Dr Annie Warburton, who wrote some of the music textbooks used in the school, and her plans to throw an 80th birthday celebration for Mr Read who had come to assist the teaching staff.

She asks students to remain where they are after the assembly as she wanted to take a few minutes to talk to each pupil individually.

Ida Gertrude Carroll had a strong religious faith which can be seen throughout her speeches.

With thanks to the Ida Carroll Trust.

Part of the #NSM2020 project "A 20/20 Legacy: the centenary of the Northern School of Music" supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
