Sir David Willcocks

The choral world has lost one of it’s greatest with the passing of Sir David Willcocks on Thursday 17 September. The tributes have been many and put on record what a remarkable man he was. He was a chorister at Westminster Abbey and Director of Music at Salisbury and Worcester Cathedrals before moving to King’s College, Cambridge in 1958 until his retirement in 1973. As one of our finest contemporary composers and choir trainer of many, including the Bach Choir for 38 years, he leaves a marvellous legacy.
