A lovely and fitting tribute to a great man. Visually too.

May the music in his heart be joined with that of the angels and saints in praise of God.

Had the privilege of seeing him and hearing his latest work at the Manchester International Festival this summer. Very moving - RIP

I have taken part in performances of some of his shorter choral works - The Lamb being the most beautiful, in my opinion - and had the privilege of seeing him some years ago at a performance commissioned for the City of London Festival at St Paul's Cathedral.

A true genius. May he rest in peace.

Thanks YG.

One of the few modern composers who could actually create beautiful music.

Just got the news. Shocked - I was planning to write to him. God's will. Requiem aetername dona eis Domine
