GIDLEY o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-03-04 published
Muriel Gidley STAFFORD
By William WRIGHT, Friday, March 4, 2005 - Page A18
Musician, horticulturalist. Born April 1, 1906, in Leamington, Ontario. Died December 30, 2004, of a stroke, aged 98.
Muriel GIDLEY grew up the daughter of Leamington's postmaster and first water and gas commissioner. Beginning piano lessons at age 7, she finished her Associateship of the Toronto Conservatory of Music in piano in 1925. She also studied organ and, at age 15, was engaged as organist of the Anglican Church.
In 1925, she came to Toronto to study at the Conservatory and live in the old residence on Orde Street. To economize, she moved to an elegant mansion on Sherbourne St. that provided good accommodation at minimal cost for young working women in the city.
She studied organ with G.D. ATKINSON at Sherbourne Street United Church, piano with Ernest SEITZ, and theory with Ernest MacMILLAN, who became a great friend and supporter. Early in her studies, she learned the importance of trusting her own judgment and this formed the core of her authoritative musicianship. When MacMILLAN became principal of the Conservatory, Muriel went to Healey WILLAN for theoretical work. In 1926, she won highest marks (90 per cent) and a gold medal for her A.T.C.M. exam in organ.
About this time, a new congregation -- youthful, intellectual, and artistic -- was being formed as a splinter from Jarvis Street Baptist Church. In 1927, Muriel was invited to take charge both of the organ and choir in this new church "on approval" -- an approval that lasted nearly 32 years. Soon her choir was famous in the city for its fine singing, winning Kiwanis Festival prizes. She enjoyed playing colourful works, always asking herself before starting to master a piece, "Is this piece worth while spending my time learning?"
In winter, Park Road Church was unheated. Muriel stitched a canvas roof and walls for a frame fitted over the organ console. She placed an electric heater in the "tent" and continued practising and teaching through winter.
When Casavant FRÈRES introduced the organ series at Eaton Auditorium, she was invited to perform several times, along with artists of international reputation.
In 1927, she joined the Canadian College of Organists, and in 1948 she became Chair of the Toronto Centre (the first woman to do so) and had an all-male committee. She remarked, "I soon learned that I had to think things through on my own, and make up a definite plan and go to the meetings prepared. If I left it up to the men, they would simply sit around and talk, and at the end of the evening, nothing was accomplished!" She was soon involved in the National Council and became national president in 1957, thus being the first woman to hold such an honour in either Canada or in the sister organization in the United States.
She retired from duties in Park Road Baptist in 1959; as she admitted, "I wanted to get out while I was on top; I didn't want to fade away." She didn't. She remained active in the Women's Musical Club of Toronto and in the Heliconian Club, encouraging women making a career in music.
She and her husband built a magnificent garden around their home, winning many prizes for her roses. She said, "Planning a garden is like planning an organ program; you have to have the whole thing in your head before you start putting it down on paper."
Her honest and direct comments were famous. She recently said to a competition winner, "Well, what you did with the piece was interesting, but that's not the way I would have done it!"
She was given honours by the various organizations in which she was active and was respected and indeed loved by the many musicians in the city who knew her.
William WRIGHT, Director of Music of Deer Park United, is a friend of Muriel STAFFORD.
