R.I.P. Sir Neville Marriner

More sad news came in this morning.
The now-formerly-ubiquitous Sir Neville Marriner has died at the age of 92.

The founder and long-time conductor of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields was one of the most recorded conductors ever, and he was actually quite excellent at it.

There was even the Detroit connection through his time as artistic director of Michigan's Meadowbrook Festival from 1979-1984.

He will be well and truly missed.
