Musical mystery

Everyone loves a good mystery, but music researchers are happiest when the mystery is solved. In our “Features” section there is a new item about Seaton Rivers, a composer that we have been unable to find any biographical information about. Maybe you have some information?

When adding some more profiles to the site we have realised that that it would be helpful to have a quick link at the top of each section to the profiles included in that section. So we are adding this to each alphabetical section and hope it makes it easier for you. Some of the new entries include people working in some of the smaller centres, such as the retailer Ralph O’Hara in Whanganui, the composer Ethel Wright in Dannevirke, and from Gisborne the music teachers Ellen Bach and Edward Rangiuia.
