Kenneth Montgomery - The Maestro


“She had a group of friends who used to say to her, ‘Lily, you’re not having any life of your own for all these choir practices.’  She had to take me  – two buses – and wait for me. And her friends would say, ‘You’re doing too much for him.’
“And so,‘I told them so’ was her way of saying, ‘It was worth it.’”

He pauses before adding thoughtfully. “My parents were marvelous really; they just let me get on with it.”
