Edgar passed away in Charing Cross Hospital on Saturday evening, 5th October 2013, from cancer, at the age of 85. Known to his friends as “Mick”, he was for many years a prominent recorder teacher and performer, a regular attendee at the SRP London branch, and one of the leading members of the Sacred Music Drama Society. He had been in poor health with limited mobility for some years. Earlier this year he had been in hospital for two months after a stroke. Although he made a partial recovery and returned home, this took its toll.
