    I think that is the same person who taught organ at my school, Dean Close School, in Cheltenham, 1970-1975. His name is spelled the same, his age matches, and he was, we were told, offered the position of organist at Coventry Cathedral which he turned down in favor of remaining at our school. Which fits with the praises given by the narrator in the video clip. Colin G. Sherratt was a thin, nervous, fast-walking chain-smoker and a purveyor of the filthiest jokes we\'d ever heard. He had a notably hawkish nose, if I may. He joined the school\'s staff in 1965. He had M.A., F.R.C.O. after his name in the school directory. He was single. His only function at the school was playing and teaching the organ.
