Associate of the RSCM (ARSCM):
Norman Buckle held the position of Director of Music at the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Christ the King in Johannesburg, from 1966 until 1996, where he maintained a very high standard of choral music, and was instrumental, in having the three manual console enlarged to an impressive and well-voiced four manual organ. He was later appointed Director of Music at the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Rosebank, Johannesburg, and a post from which he has recently retired after seventeen years of placing the parish on the musical map in the Johannesburg Archdiocese. Norman was in fact responsible for leading Catholic affiliation to the RSCM in South Africa, and has served on the Committee of the Northern Branch for 40 years, running numerous one-day schools, and being a consultant to both schools and parishes, particularly among our Catholic members. Well done, Norman, you certainly deserve this honour!
