David Gedge

Recommended Posts

I have the sad news to report that David Gedge, former organist of Brecon Cathedral, died peacefully this morning in Glangwili Hospital, having had a stroke a few days before. The funeral arrangements have not yet been announced. May he rest in peace.

I knew David Gedge in his brief time at Selby Abbey prior to his 41 years at Brecon Cathedral. I met him and Hazel at Lincoln Cathedral, a few years after he went to Brecon in, I suppose, the early 1970's when his choir were spending a residential week there.

 

David worked hard to preserve the Cathedral type choir that some of us remember from our youth in a Welsh country Parish church that was, by virtue of the catheda, a cathedral. I may be wrong but, I don't think his efforts were, always, totally appreciated - which is a dreadful shame.

 

We lost touch but I remember David telling me that he always thought that Hazel was a much finer player than himself - my prayers and sympathy to his family.

 

Requiem aeternam
