Sorry to hear that he passed away on 7th January at the age of 91. South African born, but predominantly resident in Britain.

I first heard his music on a friend's record of the first two Piano Sonatas. He seems to have kept composing through his 80s, including the 3rd Symphony recently released on cd. There is a lot of his work, especially the choral pieces that I'm unfamiliar with.

Sad news indeed. One hopes that Joubert was able to hear his Symphony No.3 on disc before he died.

There are, by my reckoning, thirteen large choral works-Choral Symphonies, Oratorios, Cantatas-none of which has been recorded.
