Whettam, Graham There are 3 products.

Graham Whettam worked throughout his life with unwavering, single-minded dedication. His music is invariably dramatic, and it reveals an individual voice that encompasses both stark grittiness and gentle lyricism. The craftsmanship is impeccable, the language eclectic, yet individual, the commitment uncompromising. Like all the best music, Whettam's satisfies at all levels, from emotional gut-reaction to stringent intellectual analysis, and at no time does it pander to ephemeral fashion.

Born in Swindon, Wiltshire, in 1927, Whettam was educated at two local grammar schools and at St Luke's College, Exeter, where he studied English and pursued, largely unaided and self-taught, his interest in composition. On leaving college he took a job teaching English in Spalding. A reluctant teacher, he would set his charges written work and then surreptitiously write music at his desk for the rest of the lesson.
