David Willcocks (1919-2015)

Sad News:

Sir David Willcocks, former Director of Music at King’s College Cambridge, has died at the age of 95. An accomplished conductor, organist and composer, he held several positions at English cathedrals and choirs – but it is for his ever-popular arrangements and harmonisations of Christmas carols, immortalised in the Carols for Choirs series, that he will mostly be remembered.
