O tuneful lyre of Jubal
Play merry Noel
Resound in many a far Eastern key
Now bind a wandering mother in magical spell
To give her child a lifetime of melody.
from Four Carols (2002)
by Malcolm Hawkins
Jubal was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe. (Genesis 4. 21)
The musical enchanter of the four Rawuns, his child was Genun,
goddess of the arts,beauty and epicurean pursuits.
Malcolm studied piano and string bass at the Royal Academy of Music in London. A scholarship to study with the composer Cesar Bresgen at the Mozarteum took him to Salzburg, where his compositions were performed and broadcast on Austrian Radio as a result of winning the competition Das Neue Lied. On returning to England he worked for a light music publisher and taught at Cranleigh School in Surrey, and at the RAM.
