Thread Name: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
Subject: RE: George Butterworth (Musician-died 1916)
I'm a huge fan of Butterworth and I think he would have gone on to be one of our greatest composers had he not been killed in WW1 - up there with RVW and Elgar. A few days after we moved to York in 2016 I was amazed to come across the plaque you mention whilst looking for my new doctor's surgery. The date was Nov 11. A moment of my life I will never forget.
