Dr Jonathan Impett, current head of the school of music, said: “The school indelibly and gratefully bears his stamp. The deep intelligence which he carried with such charm, his warmth, wisdom and civility graced all those with whom he came into contact. He will be sorely missed by his friends, colleagues and students.”
