Sad to hear that #JenniferBate has died. A supremely gifted organist, especially as an interpreter of Messiaen. Her father was D of M at @StJamesMHill when I attended it in the 1960s. RIP. @Muswellife
So incredibly sad to hear of the death of Jennifer Bate. Since I first attended her organ course in 2011 when she patiently went over my questionable organ compositions, she has been amazing at keeping in regular contact and giving me lessons on Messiaen. A huge loss. RIP. pic.twitter.com/Vck71WaSn5
