We mourn the loss of Derek Holman and Patrick Wedd

Date May 22, 2019 Author Lorne Swan Categories What's New?

We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of Derek Holman and Patrick Wedd, two of Canada’s finest musicians. 

Dr. Holman was an organist, composer, choir-director and taught for almost thirty years in the Faculty of Music’s Department of Theory and Composition at the University of Toronto. He was awarded the Order of Canada for his services to music and received an honourary degree of Doctor of Sacred Letters from Trinity College in the University of Toronto. Dr. Holman died in Ottawa on May 20, 2019.  A memorial service will be held in Toronto this fall. Read the full obituary here

Montreal organist, choral conductor and church musician Patrick Wedd died on May 19, 2019, at the age of 71 following a brief illness. Dr. Wedd was director of music at Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal, and the artistic director of Musica Orbium, a semi-professional choir he founded in 1992. For many years, he was also a frequent guest host and commentator on various CBC Music shows.  CBC’s Choral Concert will pay tribute to Dr. Wedd on Sunday, May 26, 2019. A funeral service is planned for Friday, May 31, at 2 p.m. at Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal. Read more at
