“The best tuba player in the world”.  That’s how Sir Charles Mackerras once described Cliff Goodchild principal tuba of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra for 36 years. Clifford Dominic Goodchild was born September 11th 1926 and passed away on July 21st 2008.   His funeral on July 28th was to a “packed house”  -   hundreds and hundreds in a standing-room-only high mass at the Church of Mary Immaculate, Waverley (NSW, Australia).
