Dr. Peter Hurford 22/11/1930 - 03/03/2019

It's very sad to hear that one of the greatest English organists of the 20th century, Dr. Peter Hurford has died.


He was an inspiration to me as a music student and for many long years after.
During my time as an organ builder I would always try to attend one of his concerts if I was working anywhere near the venue where he was performing.


In his interpreatation of Bach, Buxtehude, Bruhns etc. as well is in his interpretaions of the Classical, Romantic and Modern eras, he ranked alongside with the best
European organists of his time, including Karl Straube, Guther Ramin, Karl Richter and Helmut Walcha.


Rest in Peace dear Peter, you will be sorely missed.
