Sir Philip Ledger, former Principal of the RSAMD (now Royal Conservatoire of Scotland)

RIP Sir Philip Ledger

'Whittaker' is deeply sorry to note the death of Sir Philip Ledger, our former Principal. 

If I can share a personal memory, it is of the memorable Christmas concerts that Sir Philip used to conduct, and in particular, the one that I attended when Sir Philip appeared in the garb of Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Our catalogue lists just some of the many recordings and publications that Sir Philip was responsible for - including some LPs of the Nine Lessons and Carols recorded during his time at Kings College, Cambridge.
