British composer dies at 104RIP
The formidable Francis Jackson, organist of York Minster for 36 years, died peacefully yesterday at the age of 104.
He composed more than 150 works, mostly for organ and choir. It is estimated that he gave more than 2,000 organ recitals.
He was also the teacher of the James Bond composer John Barry.
Was saddened to hear this. A consummate musician and perfect gentleman.
