John Scott (1956-2015)

John Scott, the British-born organist-choirmaster who was to have given a recital here in October in the Repertoire Recital Series of the Richmond chapter, American Guild of Organists, has died at 59.

Scott, the former organist of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, came to the United States in 2004 to become organist of St. Thomas Church (Episcopal) in New York and director of the St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, one of the preeminent such ensembles in this country.
