This memorial CD celebrates the beautiful music, heart and soul of gifted composer Barry
Seaman, who was tragically lost to Covid-19 on April 5, 2020 aged just 73, when the UK was
in the first lockdown and “normal” funerals were not allowed.
Born on 10th December 1946, Barry realised from a young age he wanted – needed – to be a
composer, dedicating himself to that vocation, and later studying music and composition at
York University from 1969 to 1972. He was a prolific creator and a natural teacher with a
unique style, passionate about sharing and communicating his love of music, film and art.
His many friends have spoken of Barry’s distinctive voice, his talent as a composer who
combined modesty and boldness, whose sincerity was obvious in everything he did, of a
gentle man, one of a kind, who deserved many, many more years. A man who touched so
many people’s lives, who is greatly missed – and who leaves something beautiful and
everlasting behind him.
would have been Barry’s birthday. Although we have lost Barry, we must not
lose his music. Through the transcendent beauty he created, he lives on.
