Peter Hurford, RIP

I have just found out that the acclaimed organist Peter Hurford died on 2 March at the age of 88.

Playing J S Bach Passacaglia and Fugue in C Minor BWV 582 in his honour.

The title also appeals to those with a puerile sense of humour (i.e. most organists).

My parents, particularly my father, were great admirers of Peter. I recall them returning from the Proms when I was a nipper chattering about his wonderful mastery of the RAH organ. Dont know which year but probably late 60’s. RIP
