I too remember Jack Major at both Moseley Avenue and at Woodlands. I am in fact in the first picture of the Woodlands School orchestra playing of all things the French horn!! I hadn't played one before or since but was recruited to make up the numbers and fill a chair!!! In the first school concert he played a duet with Bryan Fernyhough who went on to be a renowned composer and I believe still teaches at Stanford Uni in America. I too was in the school choir and can clearly remember we sang "12 days of Christmas" and on each day the requisite number would stand and sing, so on day 5, 5 of us would stand, problem was I kept forgetting to stand and simply stood at whatever number was on and sang with them. The audience found it funny! Jack never!
