A Tribute to John Cargher

Parishioners may recall

that I was quite fond of

The Man They Called John Cargher.

Vale John Cagher


Another Good Soul has left this earth, Parishioners. John Cargher, the power behind the remarkable Singers of Renown, passed away at his home in Melbourne on Wednesday on April 30th, four days after the broadcast of the final edition of Singers of Renown.

The program’s opening and closing theme is ‘Ho sognato una cassetta‘ from Puccini’s one-act opera Il Tabarro.

I am delighted that OUR ABC has just released A Tribute to John Cargher!

A 3 CD set featuring 2 CDs of his Singers of Renown programmes
– including John Cargher’s distinctive commentary
– and a disc of musical highlights from his other long-running program, Music for Pleasure.

Enjoi, Parishioners!
