We at the cathedral were terribly saddened to learn that John Scott, Director of Music at Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, New York, has died suddenly. John was born in Wakefield & was a chorister at the Cathedral, becoming Head Chorister, Organ Scholar & Assistant Organist. He and his father Douglas were staunch members of Wakefield & District Organists Association. We have lost a great musician & a great friend. May he rest in peace.
