I was sorry to hear that Francis Jackson died on 10th January at the grand old age of 104.  He was a big influence in English Church music.

I only heard him live once, when he gave a recital in All Saints, Ilkley a few years ago.  One of the best recitals I've attended - even if he did forget he had a big reed drawn at one point!

May he rest in peace.
