Francis Pott to receive prestigious award for ‘distinguished achievement in the fields of organ and choral composition’

With the start of 2021 came the public announcement that Francis is to receive the Medal of the Royal College of Organists [RCO] – its highest award – in recognition of his ‘distinguished achievement as a composer of organ and choral music’.

Owing to the Coronavirus no Conferment Ceremony can take place in 2021 and, accordingly, presentation of the award is deferred until 12 March 2022, but the RCO has given its blessing to reporting of its intentions, made known to Francis in a private letter on 21 July 2020.
