Jeremy de Satge...
... founder of The Music Makers, composer, teacher, writer, has died. He made an enormous contribution to the revival of good liturgical music in Britain: to see him teach Gregorian chant to a group of people of all ages and different skills and backgrounds, was an inspiration. His beautiful Mass for Boys' Voices was sung recently at Westminster Cathedral. He taught with joy, and his enthusiasm was infectious. He had a fine singing voice and was an excellent director of music: equally enjoyable was his gift of friendship, shared with, among many others, members of the Catholic Writers' Guild of which he was a valued member. He had a deep and sincere faith and his music conveyed that. And he was a much-loved husband and father...may God reward him for all the joy he brought to so many people.
