I hear those voices that will not be drowned

Well, here is a memorial to a famous composer. It has caused quite a bit of controversy but I think it’s great – especially if you have small children who can crawl underneath it. Do you like it or loathe it?

Virtual brownie points to anyone who can answer the following:

Which composer does it commemorate?
What is the significance of the inscription?
What is the name of the local brewery?

For an extra gold star, can you think of any other unusual memorials to composers or musicians? The quirkiest one I can think of is a local pub called “The King’s Head”, which has a picture of Jimi Hendrix on the sign.

Over to you!
