English organist and composer. Studied under Bairstow at York and succeeded him as the organist at Yorkminster in 1946 where he remained until 1983. Like Bairstow, he has had a considerable influence on the musical life of Yorkshire. His reputation has been more as a player than a composer, but he has written a considerable amount of church music and serves as editor for a number of church music series.
