A music-filled funeral has been held for a former vicar of Langho, the charismatic and talented musician the Rev. Dr Quentin Wilson.

Brought up in London, he served in East London and North London, Exeter Cathedral and St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle before moving north, spending 13 years as vicar of Langho. He was an accomplished organist and tenor singer.

He moved to Burnley’s oldest church, St Peter’s, where he and his wife Anne became involved in the church school and community work.

After leaving Burnley, he pursued his interest in 18th and 19th Century history, earning a Doctorate at the University of York.

Dr Wilson (69) died of cancer in a hospice at Scarborough and his funeral was at St Mary’s Priory, Old Malton.
