David Trendell 1964-2014

10 November, 2014


Stile Antico was deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of David Trendell, whose funeral takes place today. David had a profound influence on many of us through his work as director of the choirs at King’s College London, St Bartholomew the Great, and St Mary’s Bourne Street over many years, and his inspired and passionate advocacy of sixteenth-century music in particular has left a distinctive mark on our own approach to the repertoire. He was a friend to many of us and an enthusiastic supporter of the group and its work, and he will be sorely missed by us, as by very many musicians in London and further afield who had the great privilege of knowing and working with him.

David received obituaries in The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian.
