Kenneth Tickell

Wednesday 16 July 2014

The College is very sad to announce the sudden passing of Kenneth Tickell at home on the morning of July 24, 2014. The 2011 organ in Chapel designed and built by Ken and his firm has hugely enriched the musical tradition of Keble, enhancing the liturgy, offering various opportunities for world-class organ recitalists - as well as local organ scholars - to play, and as a teaching instrument for very many Oxford students. We are proud to house one of the finest instruments of the country's leading organ builder and anticipate countless more years of musical excellence emanating from this example of his superb craftsmanship and musicianship in the organ loft.

A funeral service will be held at 2pm in St Matthew’s Church Northampton on Thursday 7 August.
