Article on George Robert in De Orgelvriend

Beginning April 2017 an article about my grandfather, George Robert, was published in the magazine "De Orgelvriend" (in Dutch). Musicologist Lourens Stuifbergen wrote a very nice article about his musical life as "stadsorganist van Haarlem" (municipal organ player) and choir conductor. With photo's from our family archive.
