The Mass is dedicated ‘to the happy memory of Peter McCrystal and his conducting within the Edington Festival of Church Music and the Liturgy’. His premature death a few years ago shocked and saddened his many friends. An inveterately gleeful leg-puller, he had never allowed me to forget one occasion in Edington [Wiltshire] when a friend of his failed to identify me as perpetrator of a piece to which she had taken exception during a concert. She denounced the culprit at length to us both before fatal eye contact occurred and all composure was loudly lost in the same instant. A Dublin resident, he sang at St Patrick’s Cathedral, and it was a poignant experience to hear this tribute brought to life a mere stone’s throw from where he had been best known and loved. Ave atque vale.
