With sorrow, the Trust learnt of the passing of Christopher Finzi, who died on November 28th at the age of 85. A cellist, conductor and composer, Christopher was, together with his violinist brother Nigel (1936-2010), a lifelong ambassador for the music of his father Gerald and for the art and poetry of his mother Joy. A founding trustee, he was Chairman of the Trust between 1981 and 1997. His friendship, support and musical intelligence will be much missed, not least by his wife Hilary and their family. The Trust's thoughts and sympathies are with them at this sad time.
