Egbert Ennulat of Kennett Square Egbert Ennulat, 84, died on Feb. 6, 2014, at his home in Kennett Square. His wife, Margund Ennulat, had preceded him on this date two years ago. Born in Germany in 1929, Ennulat emigrated to the USA in 1961. After earning a master's degree from Yale and a Ph.D. in historical musicology from Case Western Reserve University, he spent nearly four decades as a professor at the University of Georgia beginning in 1965. Throughout his career, Ennulat was a scholar and active performer on both harpsichord and organ. He also loved travel, so his resume included guest professorships in Germany, South Korea and Brazil; concerts and research papers at conferences in Denmark, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina; and performances in Norway, England, Holland, Sri Lanka, Venezuela, Chile, South Korea and Japan. In his later years, he studied and became adept in Chinese brushstroke painting, traveling to China to study at the Chinese Academy for Traditional Painting in Beijing and continually exploring the craft in which he found echoes of the music of his career. "I've been involved in music since I was 6 years old," he told a reporter for the UGA newspaper. "What fascinated me about music was the infinite number of gestures in music, which is highly manipulated like these paintings. If you look from afar at calligraphy, it all looks the same, but none of it is the same. This fascinates me." Egbert Ennulat was perpetually fascinated. He loved music, art, literature and the world. He loved his family. He loved life, and he lived it well. He is survived by two daughters, Daniela and Christine Ennulat; his brother, Reinhardt Ennulat, of Huntington Beach, Calif.; Christine's husband, David Wilson; and four grandchildren, Anna, Simon, Milo and Noah Wilson. A memorial will be held at Crosslands in Kennett Square on Sunday, February 23 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in his honor to ChildFund International, at www.ChildFund.org, or to a charity of your choice.

Egbert was a chlidhood friend- our families were befriended. I remember Reinhard and even their elder brother who fell during the war. As a child i was taken to school concerts when Egbert plaid the piano. Later on i listened to organ concerts on a Saturday evening and other concerts he gave.
I am very sad and it is hard to believe that the two brothers died within one month. Daniela and Christine I feel with you and I would be happy if you would contact me. God may comfort you! Ruth Moos born Kraus Waldstr. 69
