C Armstrong Gibbs(1889-1960)
Known principally for his solo songs, Armstrong Gibbs also wrote music for the stage, choral music, orchestral music (including three symphonies), and a substantial amount of chamber music. He was born near Chelmsford in Essex and spent much of his busy life there when he was not touring the country adjudicating at festivals, conducting or composing. Armstrong Gibbs was almost one of our neighbours! In 1960 he bought a neighbouring house, visible from the then Goodmusic office, so that he could "retire". Sadly, he died just before moving there, although his daughter and her family did take up residence for a while.
