http://www.thewestmorlandgazette.co.uk/news/8192770.World_renowned_organist_accused_of_sex_offences_found_dead/

The President of the Royal College of Organists has been found dead, having appeared in court on Tuesday charged with sex offences against a teenage boy between 1978 and 1982: the death is thought to have been a suicide. Now, I knew David, and my parents knew him very well, and none of us can believe the allegations. We're totally in shock that someone so full of life and kindness, someone upon whom we all knew we could depend utterly, someone so universally adored, has gone like this.

I was truly saddened the hear the news of David Sangers death. I find this rather hard to believe and feel after a period of some 28 years that it could been dealt with, if it were proven, in a more sensitive way.

It has been confirmed to me (privately) by David's niece that he took his life. The allegations are, it seems, a pack of lies, told by a known lowlife, opportunistic would-be blackmailer/extortionist. Certainly, I cannot believe that David was capable of such things - he was such a sweet, lovely, kind person, and would have been disgusted to hear of others doing such things, let alone the idea of doing them himself.
