Signatures: "Basil Lam", in black ink, "Barry McDaniel" and "William Glock", both in blue ink, 5¾x4. BASIL LAM (1914-1984)was a harpsichordist and early music scholar. In the 1960s, Lam headed the classical musical division of the BBC. In addition to playing in different music ensembles, Lam produced a fair number of articles and books, mostly concentrating on the works of Handel, Beethoven, and Bach. He also was involved in editing musical scores; two of the more notable pieces he worked on are the lute music of Dowland and Handel's Messiah.BARRY MCDANIEL (1930-2018) is an American operatic baritone who spent his career almost exclusively in Germany. He was also a celebrated concert singer and recitalist. Growing up performing at local concerts, McDaniel attended the University of Kansas where he studied voice. He then moved on to the famous Juilliard School of Music, where he studied under Mack Harrell. In 1953, following his graduation from Juilliard, McDaniel traveled to Germany on a Fulbright scholarship where he trained at the Stuttgart Music Conservatory with Alfred Paulus and Hermann Reutter and made his operatic debut. He served for two years with the U.S. Army and after returning to Europe he enjoyed a burgeoning opera career in Germany, his talents being very much in demand; he was seen in 2,100 stage and concert performances in Berlin alone. McDaniel was awarded the title of "Berliner Kammersänger" by the Senate of Berlin in 1970. WILLIAM FREDERICK GLOCK (1908-2000) was a British music critic. After attending the University of Cambridge and Gonville and Caius College, Glock studied piano with Artur Schnabel in Berlin. He began his career as a critic in 1934 where he worked for the Daily Telegraph (1934) and then for The Observer (1934-1945). He established The Score in 1949, a musical journal, functioning as its editor for over a decade. Afterward he served as a music critic for the New Statesman (1958-1959). From 1959 to 1972, Glock served as BBC Controller of Music and from 1960 to 1973, he worked as Controller of The Proms. His memoir, Notes in Advance, was published in 1991. In 1964, he was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire and in 1970 he was knighted for his contributions to "musical life". Signer on verso merits further research.
