Gwilym Beechey was born in London in 1938 and educated at Magadalene College Cambridge, where he was a major scholar and research student. He graduated MA, Mus B, Ph D, and also gained the diplomas of FRCO, FTCL, LRAM and ARCM. After a time as a schoolmaster he became a university lecturer, firstly in Glasgow and latterly in Hull. His publications included Thomas Linley (Junior) "Shakespeare Ode" (Musica Britannica XXX) and many editions of 17th and 18th century works, chiefly by British composers. He is also an arranger and player of recorder music, and has edited The Consort (published by the Dolmetsch Foundation). He is a prolific composer of organ and other church music. He worked as organist, pianist and accompanist. He also contributed many articles to periodicals including Music & Letters and The Music Review. Beechey died in late 2015
