The Morley Collection

The inspiration for this programme revolved around the musical personalities who have worked at Morley College in London. When Michael Tippett was director of music during the 1940s he invited Matyas Seiber to teach composition and harmony there. Ian Humphris, who until recently was head of choral studies at the Centre for Young Musicians (who occupy the College on Saturdays) was to have studied with Seiber but the latter’s untimely death prevented this. Nevertheless, he had been encouraged in his work by Seiber.
