Jenny Worsley

We are very saddened to learn that Jenny Worsley, wife of Peter Worsley, passed away on August 30th, at Gloucester Royal Infirmary, after a protracted illness borne with great dignity and fortitude.

Peter has been a very loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the LLMMG and was, for many years prior to the formation of the latter, a long-standing member of the Robert Farnon Society. Although he was not usually able to attend our London meetings, his constant input, comments and advice have been extremely valued.

Our sincere condolences are extended to Peter and his family.

David Lloyd-Jones [1934-2022]

It is with regret that we record the death – after a short illness –
of the conductor David Lloyd-Jones, who passed-away on June 8th 2022.

The founder of Opera North, he was principally associated with the 'serious' end of the musical spectrum and showed a particular interest in British and Russian music.

Mr. Lloyd-Jones was a prolific recording artiste, whose name appeared on several labels, including Philips, Hyperion, MRF, Marco Polo, Dutton Epoch, Chandos, Melba and Oriel.

He conducted well over thirty CDs for the NAXOS company, including four volumes of English String Miniatures, featuring Light Music works by many celebrated composers, including Haydn Wood, John Rutter, George Melachrino, Frank Cordell, Cecil Armstrong Gibbs, Philip Lane, Peter Hope, Adam Carse, Ernest Tomlinson, Gustav Holst, Paul Lewis, Frederick Delius and Peter Warlock.
