We are sad to share the news that Sir Stephen Cleobury died on 22 November – St Cecilia’s Day – after a lengthy period of illness. He will be best remembered for his 37-year tenure as Director of Music at King’s College, Cambridge, where amongst many other successes he instigated the annual commissioning of a new carol for the Christmas Eve service of Nine Lessons and Carols. Outside King’s he worked with many choirs and orchestras, gave organ recitals, and composed and arranged music which is performed around the world. He will be very much missed as a musician and a caring, respected leader.
