It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of John, following an illness. We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Sylvia, children Sarah and Dave, sister Tish and extended family. Grandson of the tenor, John was always very supportive of the project to release the complete recordings of his grandfather. His generosity in this regard contributed in no small way to the success of the Odeon Edition, and he had also done all he could to promote the ongoing efforts to ensure that the Electric Edition comes to fruition. Always friendly and approachable, he will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
