I am so sad to learn of this.

 

I spent a revelatory day with him, in the exploration of Sweelinck’s organ music. Subsequent to this, my performances were transformed (I hope !).

 

His recordings of this, and other, early repertoire are very much understated, in comparison with some more flamboyant performances – but none the worse for this.

 

Another musical Titan who has left us far too soon.
