St Thomas Church, New York, will hold the funeral tomorrow for John  Scott, its Organist and Director of Music, who died suddenly last month at the age of 59.

St Paul’s in London, his previous cathedral will offer prayers of commendation on Friday 9 October at 5 pm.

  • Simon S. says:

    AFAICS, St Thomas Church is not a cathedral.

    • MWnyc says:

      Correct. The Episcopal cathedral in New York City is St. John the Divine.

      St. Thomas Fifth Avenue, like the nearby and similarly grand St. Bartholomew’s, is a parish church – although a large and impressive church for a very affluent parish.
