The Gentlemen of St John’s were shocked to hear last night of the death of former Organ Scholar, John Scott. At St John’s from 1974-78, when the Gents had only recently been formed as an ensemble in its own right, his reputation as a player garnered simply during those formative years lives on incredibly strongly. For all successors of his as Organ Scholar in particular, he was, and will continue to be a huge inspiration through his huge discography as perhaps the best organist of his generation. The Gents extend their condolences to his family at this unimaginably difficult time.
John Scott RIP (1956-2015)
