Early music pioneer has died, aged 67

Christopher Jackson, founder of Montreal’s Early Music Studio, has died of lung cancer. An organist and chorus master, he was a tireless propagator of the music of Orlando di Lasso, Palestrina, Tallis and Monteverdi.

He served as Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University from 1994 to 2005.

Our sympathies to his family.

    A far underrated conductor. He did a great lot for the music scene in Montreal.
