David Johnson (author of "Music and Society in 18th Century Scotland" and "Scottish Fiddle Music of the 18th Century", editor of some of the volumes of "Musica Scotica", cellist and composer) died suddenly at his home in Edinburgh a few days ago, a few weeks short of his 67th birthday.

The funeral is at 12pm on Tuesday April 21st, at Warriston Crematorium, Edinburgh.

I'll miss him.

Jack, I am not aware of poor David. But I do hope he will rest in peace.
Dying at the age of 66 is much too early.

I didn't know David personally but his books are an invaluable source of much information.

RIP

I have used his books exensively for my recent research and found them invaluable. One can disagree with him here and there but there is no doubt of his massive contribution to the study of Scottish music. I can't believe he accomplished so musch in a comparatively short time. What else might he have produced? Condolences to his family.

David was a cousin of mine. Folowing a visit to us in London he completed his "Twelve Preludes and Fugues for Piano" - released by Zephyr, played by Ian Hobson. A fascinating and amusing work; the 10th fugue based on a train journey from us into London. He was an amazing musician and will be missed by all his many relations.

I have the CD of the Preludes and Fugues. It's completely original stuff. I can't imagine why it didn't make more impact.
