Ralph Moore

I am a traditionally minded, classically inclined, late vocation English teacher, who worked in educational publishing before teaching. I am now a Head of Department in an independent Catholic school. I have had a passion for opera since I was eighteen and had a brief flirtation with vocal training in New York in the early 80's. I am reasonably knowledgeable about the history of recorded opera and the workings of the voice but love instrumental music, too, and have a special attachment to late 19C/early 20C Romantic composers like Richard Strauss. I am an amateur graphologist and calligrapher, a Francophone/phile, am generally interested in languages, and enjoy fine art and literature. I have lived abroad in Africa and the US, and have travelled a good deal. I am married to an American and have two sons.
