Lawrence Whiffin - eulogy by John McCaughey

'It is often said that music is non-specific in its meanings - which is its power and its limitation, and sometimes its danger. Because of that vagueness, it is quite common to look for clues in the life and personality and times of the composer, in order to understand and explain a piece of music more fully. No one here needs convincing that Laurie's personality was all around us in audible form.' John McCaughey spoke these words some months ago in a eulogy delivered at the composer Lawrence Whiffin's funeral in November 2012. McCaughey has kindly made this eulogy available for publication on Resonate.
