NCMI moves to it's own place on the web.
This new home for the Noël Coward Music Index is dedicated to the late Alan Farley. This and a NEW Alan Farley Page will be featured here to act as a permanent reminder of Alan's contribution to Noël Cowards's music.
Kathy Williams the Noël Coward Society's West Coast Liaison Officer provides a tribute in her West Coast Newsletter that includes a link to a touching obituary in the October 23rd issue of the San Francisco Chronicle, by Music Critic Joshua Kosman. A full obituary will appear in the February edition of the Society's magazine Home Chat.
