Bruno Turner (conductor)

Bruno Turner is a British musicologist, choral conductor, broadcaster, publisher and businessman.

The son of a motor spares magnate, Turner went on holiday to Sweden shortly after the Second World War. Discovering that their wall-covering industry was unaffected due to the country's neutral status, Turner realised the potential in post-war England which he rightfully expected would experience a boom in building after the damage it had experienced. On the spot, he bought vast amounts and had them shipped to England. Despite the fury of his father, Turner proved right in his evaluation and the stock was almost instantly sold out. Upon inheriting the company, Turner fully switched the ailing company from motor spares to wall covering, thereby saving many jobs in a depressed part of London. Furthermore, having experienced a brief spell of unemployment in his youth, Turner sought to create a more humanitarian company where a job would be for life and worked and where redundancy was almost unknown. With his cash flow secure Bruno also turned his attention to promotion of the arts as a commentator and writer and as a conductor. In 1977 he created Mapa Mundi, a company dedicated to publishing Medieval music, a venture that again proved successful. Turner was a Catholic choirmaster, a radio broadcaster and active as a conductor and speaker. He is the founding conductor of Pro Cantione Antiqua of London. He has written frequently on early music, performance practice and the rival elements in singing: 'Counterpoint is only one element in the music, there is expression too and you should allow your voice to be coloured and not sing like an automaton.'
