"Goodbye 'til next time'': A critical biography of A. E. Floyd (1877-1974)
Burk, Ian. (2011) "Goodbye 'til next time'': A critical biography of A. E. Floyd (1877-1974) Lyrebird Press.
A.E. Floyd (1877–1974) had the ability to make music interesting and accessible to the musical public. By the 1940s, he was a household name in Australia particularly as a result of his music broadcasts, which always ended with the words ‘and now I’ll say goodbye ’til next time’. Under his direction, music at St Paul's Cathedral, Melbourne, enjoyed an international reputation for excellence.
This book traces the life and work of a colourful, sometimes contradictory and legendary character: his early musical development in the United Kingdom and his subsequent work as cathedral organist, conductor, composer, music critic, broadcaster and educator.
