He was born in Salisbury, England and awarded a choral scholarship at King's College, Cambridge, from where he graduated with MA and BMus degrees. Case was one of England's leading baritones in oratorio and lieder; in the mid-1950s he became associated with all the great choral societies and festivals. He worked as Director of Music at King's College School in Wimbledon, and also as National Music Advisor to the Townswomen's Guilds. A regular broadcaster on BBC radio, he performed on television and in concert throughout Europe and Canada. John Carol recorded widely for EMI and Lyrita, especially opera, choral works and songs. One of his first performances was in EMI's recording of Gilbert and Sullivan's opera The Yeomen of the Guard, in the small role of Second Yeoman, conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent. His choral recordings include solo parts in Bach's St Matthew Passion (with both Vaughan Williams and Otto Klemperer), Faure's Requiem and numerous works by Elgar and Vaughan Williams. Among his opera performances is as the Evangelist in Sir Adrian Boult's recording of Vaughan William's The Pilgrim's Progress. His English song recordings include the works of Gerald Finzi, notably the Hardy song cycles for baritone. John Carol Case retired from the concert platform in 1976 to concentrate on teaching singing. In 1976 the Royal Academy made him an honorary RAM, and in 1993 he was awarded OBE for services to music. For All Saints Church, Thornton-le-Dale, he wrote carols, which have been published by Banks Music Publications. NADIA BOULANGER (1887-1979), French organist, composer, conductor and renowned teacher of music, was the daughter and granddaughter of well-known musicians. She entered the Paris Conservatory at age 10, and came in 2nd in the Prix de Rome competition, a prize her younger sister Lili, who died in 1918, was the first woman to win. Boulanger was the first woman to conduct several of the world's great orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. As Director of the American Conservatory in Fontainebleu and instructor at several other music schools, she taught and greatly influenced many famed American composers, including Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and Philip Glass.
