Roy Henderson
Roy Henderson, the great baritone and singing teacher, has died aged 100. He was best known as an interpreter of Delius, but his long and rich musical career included singing with Elgar, performing at the first Glyndebourne season and teaching Kathleen Ferrier. He was also a passionate sportsman, playing cricket (a crafty spin-bowler) and football (a tenacious goalkeeper).
