Leading English player diesRIP
We have been notified of the death of the outstanding recorder player Emma Murphy, a shining star on the early music circuit.
Emma died of complications resulting from Covid-19. She was a few days short of her fiftieth birthday. She leaves a husband, Alex, and two grieving children.
UPDATE: Her husband Alex Casbolt informs us that the cause of death was not Covid effects but from an illness called Systemic Scleroderma, from which she had been suffering for most of the last year..
Aside from her beautiful playing Emma was known as one of the kindest – and most impeccably good-mannered – musicians.
