Thomas Wilson book-launch: official biography

On 4th November, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's Whittaker Library hosted the launch of the official biography of Scotland's eminent composer Thomas Wilson CBE: Thomas Wilson Introit: Towards the Light - the Biography of Scotland's Great Composer by Margaret Wilson and David Griffith.

Born in the United States and raised in Scotland, Thomas Wilson rose from modest beginnings to a position of international recognition as one of the leading composers to come from Britain in the latter half of the twentieth century. From his earliest years music was central to his life.

The story of Wilson’s life as a composer and a man is told by his wife Margaret, who shared the early years of privation as Wilson strove to develop his unique voice and was also able to share in his later success that included important commissions and prestigious awards.
