Sir David Willcocks


Born in Cornwall, Willcocks's musical talent was clear from an early age - a choristership at Westminster Abbey led to music scholarships and the prestigious organ scholarship at King's. While studying there, Willcocks, like so many of his generation, found his studies interrupted by the Second World War, in which he served with distinction - seeing action in the ill-fated Operation Market Garden in the Netherlands, and winning the Military Cross.
