Who are we?

A Canadian musician and a French music lover.

We live in British Columbia, Canada.

The musician, Marjorie Cullerne, is a great-niece of Haydn Wood. She is a busy violinist and violin teacher. She has two university degrees in Music History. Marjorie is fortunate to have in her possession much of the family archive about Haydn Wood.

The music lover, Gilles Gouset, has been a cinema teacher and a researcher in film for forty years. Living in Picardy, France, led him to start researching on the history of the song Roses of Picardy about which he has written a book published in France. He is now dedicating his time into researching the life and works of Haydn Wood.

 

We present:

and about Haydn Wood's hit song Roses of Picardy:

 

Our activities:

We are reconstructing the story of Haydn Wood's life.

We are diligently and enthusiastically endeavouring to share with music lovers the scope of his heart-warming and melodious music. He composed approximately 330 compositions besides the already famous Roses of Picardy.

We are creating a fully referenced catalogue of Haydn Wood's compositions. Our private music library contains more than 900 printed versions of his musical works.

We sell a small number of his compositions which are copyrighted by The Estate of Haydn Wood and we sell all of his compositions in the countries where they are out of copyright (unless they are available from the publishers).

We are organizing or would be willing to help others organize concerts of his works.

We give lecture presentations on his life and his works, and on Roses of Picardy.

We are have produced the first ever compact disc with songs all composed by Haydn Wood.
