I had the good pleasure to meet Jon Vickers in Israel in 1972 when he was singing Samson in "Samson and Delilah" at the ancient amphitheatre, Caesarea, during the Israel Festival. My friend and colleague, the great Wagnerian singer Norman Bailey was the High Priest in that opera and during rehearsals I used to travel in a taxi together with Jon Vickers, Norman and Yvonne Minton (Delilah) from the Israel Philharmonic Guest House to the rehearsals at Caesarea every afternoon! Yes, Jon was a wonderful tenor!

It shows what a wide world Adland represents.

I really must listen to more of his music.

This is a great forum isn't it?

Hi Sylvia,

That really must have been an amazing time for you, what a wonderful time you all must have had together. Of course this maybe afforded you a real good insight into the man behind the music :), Its really great to bring back musical memories for people, and have them share it.

Many Thanks Sylvia and Take Care,
