We have just heard the sad news that Howard Davies, who was organist and choirmaster at St Mary’s between 1989 and 1995 has died. He will be buried quietly at Huntley Church on Tuesday and a memorial service will be held for him in better times.
Howard came to St Mary’s from St Catharine’s Church in Gloucester and he returned there for a while when he left us. Howard lived in Hunley and had a strong association with Huntley Church. Many at St Mary’s will remember the dedication that he brought to the music in Ross during his time here. We send our condolences to Margaret his wife, and family.
