Peter Hurford 1930-2019

Post by Belle » Sun Mar 03, 2019 12:18 pm

This fabulously gifted organist has died after suffering series of strokes and also Alzheimer's Disease, at the age of 88. I have recordings made by him of the great Bach organ works. He made a tremendous contribution to music.

Another great artist passes. I'm pleased that I have some of his many recordings.

Very sad indeed. I have many of Hurford's discs, although I'm not a particular fan of the organ. Condolences are in order to his family and friends.
