Have been thinking about him all day, off and on, some sadness but also memories of the one memorable evening spent in his company (a very informal concert in Washington,DC), bits of his songs, gratitude that he was such a special person and meant so much to so very many people.

Another great one gone. Having loved many of his songs for years and been in awe of his recordings I finally had the honor and the pleasure of meeting him and talking with him for almost an hour in 2004 at Lancaster. He was most kind and it is a conversation I will never forget. He was a great man and I am a better person for having met him.

Cyril, may you rest in peace. My condolences to the family.

A wonderful man who will be sorely missed -lets celebrate his life and remember him with a song and a smile. Here is a little Cyril story which sums up how he was regarded -

Following the move from Leeds to Exeter we urgently needed to contact Cyril and in desperation rang directory enquiries having gone through the rigmarole of a new number - not sure of the address etc - the gentleman in diectory enquiries when given the name said
"Oh you mean Singing Cyril!" yes certainly I will find the number - and he did -but only after 10 minutes remembering where and when he had heard Cyril.

Such is the measure of the man.

Good night dear friend

Cyril's excellent songs will be sung with affection by singers everywhere. Many of his songs have been embraced seamlessly into the tradition and this is the mark of Cyril's strenght as a songwriter. But outside his musical and poetic ability, Cyril was a wonderful man, his humility, his warmth, his friendliness and his wonderful sense of humour marked him out as an exceptional person. He will be sorely missed among his family, his friends and his many, many admirers. So long Cyril, I will sing a song for you and Rosemary tonight and I will drink a long toast to your memory

Cyril was a giant. Fabulous song-writer an a warm original singer.I did a floor spot at Cyril's club in Plymouth in 1967, and I had a nice chat with him. I had always wondered who were Cyril's musical inspirations - remembering that he was writing songs before any obvioiusly role-models were around. I was amazed when he cited pop singer Guy Mitchell's material as being the inspiration for a number of his, Cyril's, well-known compositions. Anyway, whatever the inspiration, Cyril's great songs will be with us for a very long time.

All the people who've been touched by Cyril's voice and his songs will miss him sadly. Those of us who were privileged to know him personally will miss him even more.

In the music business it's only common sense to be nice to people who might be able to do you a favour someday. But Cyril was habitually nice to people from whom he could not expect to gain any advantage whatsoever, because that was just the way he was.

He made the world a brighter place for many of us while he was here. We will not forget him.

It is sure that we will not see his like again, neither will we ever forget him. His legacy is a world with more, and better, music than when he arrived on the scene.

I have never forgotten his appearance at my "Dog & Gun Folk Club, back in the seventies, when he came down off the stage, to sit right in the middle of the audience. It was the most involving and intimate musical event any of us had ever enjoyed.

God rest him and keep him, he's earned his repose.

I will always remember his kindness to Barbara (Dickson) and myself when we sang for the first time together at Dunfermline Howff in 1964. He was the guest artist that night and gave us young tearaways very gentle and sound advice on style and repertoire - advice that has stayed with me ever since. Judging by Barbara's new CD it stayed with her as well!

Everything else has been said very eloquently by others.
