We mourn the loss of Glyn Jenkins, a pillar of the Music department for more than 35 years (Head of Education for many of these) who retired at the end of 2013. A formidable organist and teacher, he was very much responsible for creating the high standards of music-making and technical studies (harmony, counterpoint, pastiche composition) that set Bristol apart, as one of its most distinctive and enduring characteristics. Glyn was also the very best of colleagues, and much-loved by students. He will be missed greatly.
Our sincerest condolences go out to Glyn’s family, and the wider Uk and international community of former Bristol students, many of whose lives and musical careers have been deeply touched by Glyn’s.
