An Interview with Healy Willan

An interview with the great Anglo-Canadian composer, choral director, and organist Healy Willan that appeared in 1966 on 'Telescope' with Fletcher Markle.  I was delighted to find it after all of these years presented in 2 parts via YouTube.  

In this Christmas interview there is a some beautiful singing by the Choir of S. Mary Magdalene Church in Toronto even if the audio quality leaves a great deal to be desired.

This is the sound of the Anglican Patrimony in North America as once lived, sung, and known within the Anglican Church of Canada and in many parts of the Episcopal Church in the USA.
