Sarahk,


Yes, the 12th August 1942 was the year of his birth. However, I recall reading an article yonks ago that he was not exactly born with a silver sopranino in his mouth!! He came from a middle class family, and he was the only child..Later, ofcourse he became a Cambridge Whizz Kid (term used by the same article) so to speak.

I recall reading a book on astrology, and birthdays. He was ofcourse a Leo, and it was claimed that anyone born under the date of the 12th August was someone who was likely to revive some old craft, or words to that effect. Per chance, this is was what DM did with early music......he revived it as never before in the 20th Century.

Perhaps, more bizarrely in more ways than one the 12th August is the aniversary of my "vision", or "lucid dream"  which inspired me to do some original thinking in the world of the esoteric. I include here my new blog which is developing apace with "new" material. It is admitedly a side interest to DM ofcourse!!! Details of my "vision" can be found if one looks at the article blog listing on the right.

....Incidently, NOM apparently means NO OFFENCE MEANT....and none has been taken at least in my case!

Erm ... NOM = no other message!

>> He came from a middle class family, and he was the only child... <<

He was born to two teachers (a London headmaster come U-Brum P.E. teacher and a U-Brum dance teacher), so perhaps it's not surprising he became a teacher himself!  I think of David Munrow to have been a teacher as much as he was a musician.  :-)

>> I recall reading a book on astrology, and birthdays.

Fun food for thought.  Yes, it sounds as though what the author wrote was definitely applicable to David!

Apologies for the misinterpretation of NOM...but I did check it out on the internet  and I got a different answer. However, your rather "odd" communication could have been interpreted in "poor taste" especially as DM is not around!

Oh, I see.  No problem.

Yes, you're right; only AFTER I'd read your first response yesterday, I realized that my first post can be interpreted as being in poor taste.  Oops.  I'd honestly meant well!  To my way of thinking, August 12 will always be David Munrow's birthday.  I think his birthday and life are worth remembering and celebrating.
