Geoffrey Tristram was the brilliant organist and master of the choristers of Christchurch Priory, Dorset, for 30 years, until his untimely death in 1979.

During that time, he gave many superlative performances as, soloist, accompanist, and choral director.

His weekly recitals at the Priory and his recordings on the Willis/Compton organ there are still treasured.

I am writing a biographical study of Geoffrey Tristram, for publication towards the end of 2021.

I am writing to ask if you could publicise this fact, with an appeal to your readers to contact me with documentation and reminiscences which they might like to share as I prepare the book.

Thank you for your help.
