Subject: Conductor Sir David Willcocks dies aged 95

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/18/15 at 8:10 am

Choral conductor, composer and organist Sir David Willcocks has died aged 95.

Known as "England's choir master," he was famous for his choral arrangements of Christmas carols, many of which were written for the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at King's College Cambridge.

Born in Newquay in 1919, he became a chorister at Westminster Abbey at the age of eight, where he was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar.

Sir David died peacefully at home on 17 September, said King's College.
