This is such a touching clip. Paul Harvey, who has dementia, is still composing and a wonderful tune of his has been taken up by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, due to be released on 1st November. You can see a short clip here posted by his proud son, but it had me in floods, so be prepared!

He was on breakfast tv this morning, even the hardest hearted might need a hanky!

I heard him on Radio 4 Broadcasting House yesterday. Made me think of GN's own dear Izabella who has a wonderful spirit.

I think the record is going to be sold for charity, it is so beautiful, I hope it really takes off.

His son gave him 4 notes and he was to compose a piece using just these. Astonishingly it’s turned into a lovely piece of music and profits will go to Alzheimer’s and Music for the Brain.
