I note the death of a British composer who has suffered serious neglect: Anthony Hedges.

Hedges's Symphony No.1 is available in our British Music Archive. His Symphony No.2 has never been performed.

Hedges worked at the University of Hull and this "regional isolation" certainly seems to have worked to his disadvantage. He was the sort of composer championed by the late Bryden Thomson but since Thomson's death very few conductors have had the interest, dedication and influence to get music by these composers performed by BBC regional orchestras.

Thanks for informing of the passing of this seriously neglected composer.  Alot of his music can be heard here and is very much worth exploring:
