Francis Jackson


Organist and composer Francis Jackson has died aged 104. The musical director and resident organist at York Minster for many years, Jackson had numerous religious and secular compositions in his acclaimed oeuvre. He played at the Duke of Kent’s wedding, mentored John Barry, and continued to compose past his centennial. Three teams get points for going to Jackson, Jackson, Jackson, that’s a natural fact.

(I know it only says 2 teams in the system at the moment – but Grey Panthers mistakenly thought Ruth Apilado was still alive, and Jackson was his first sub. Reptile will get to it – he is very busy right now, so keep patient!)
