Armistice Day Celebrated With Music By F.S. Kelly

On Thursday Armistice Day was celebrated in Great Britain (in the USA it is called Veterans Day) and yesterday The Guardian published a short article about a music piece played on BBC radio 3. The newspaper writes that it was “wholly right for Armistice Day”, Elegy for String Orchestra by Frederick Septimus Kelly. In the rowing history world the composer is more known as F.S. Kelly, famous Henley winner and Olympic rowing champion. To read the article in The Guardian, click here. To read two earlier pieces about F.S. Kelly on HTBS (9 September 2009), please click here.
