|Dr. CHARLES JARMAN / AUSTRALIAN ORGANIST'S
After spending three years In London as recitalist, composer, organist
conductor and adjudicator. Dr. Charles A. Jarman returned to Sydney
yesterday by the Otranto. For some time he was organist and choirmaster of
Holy Trinity, Upper Tooting, a well-known church with n magnificent organ
and a fine choir. He gave a number of recitals at St Luke's Church, West
Norwood, which attracted large attendances, not only from the neighborhood,
but from all parts of London. Immediately before his departure for
Australia, he gave a concert in the Glenburnia Hall, the programme of which
was made up entirely from his own works. These included a "De Profundis" for
choir, composed while aboard ship in the Indian Ocean, and an interesting
chorale, "Super Flumina," setting forth the reflections of an aged Jew on
the oppression of the captivity. The choir was drawn from the churches of
Holy Trinity, Upper Tooting, and St. Luke's, West Norwood. Dr. Jarman also
conducted two choral societies in London, at one of which some music by the
Sydney City Organist (Mr. Ernest Truman) created a most favorable
impression. Novellos have published a number of Dr Jarman's choral works.
His "Album of Four Songs" has also had some success in London. Dr. Jarman is
an enthusiastic follower of Bach and Wagner. He has returned to Australia In
order to take up the appointment of organist and choirmaster at St. Peter's
Church, Neutral Bay.
