St Peter's Singers

Director: Simon Lindley

Jan Holdstock

Composer, Educationalist, Singer and Friend

It was with a heavy heart that Jan's many friends learnt on Thursday 11 May 2017 of her death in St James’s Hospital following a prolonged illness.

Jan's commitment to St Peter's Singers over a long period was immense, and all those who knew her will keenly miss her warmth, wit, insight, courage and musicality.

As a composer of songs for the young, she was a leader in the field, internationally known.

Locally, she was closely associated with YAMSENSpecially Music's work with people and children with Special Needs in the West Riding, founding their annual Lord Mayor's Carol Concert.

Please read Dr Lindley's tribute for a full appreciation

A Service of Thanksgiving, led by Canon Sam Corley, will take place at Leeds Minster on Monday 17 July at 11.00am. Music chosen by Jan will be sung by the combined choirs of St Peter’s Singers and Leeds Minster directed by Paul Dewhurst and Simon Lindley and all are warmly welcome
