Musical Director of the Society from 1937 until 1988 Edgar Hunt Recorder Magazine Summer 2006 (From ‘Tributes and Memories’, in The Recorder Magazine, Summer 2006 edited by Andrew Mayes) There can be few in the recorder world who do not know the name Edgar Hunt; many recorder players knew him and he in turn knew many recorder players.
