Sir Jeffrey Tate

Sad news: Sir Jeffrey Tate, chief conductor of the Hamburger Sinfoniker, has died aged 74. Sir Jeffrey was a good friend to our church, last visiting in March to hear Clare Hammond play. Together with Daniel Hope and Sebastian Knauer, Sir Jeffery gave a gala benefit concert at the church in February 2012 during our 400th anniversary.
