I have just found out that Sheila Whiteley has died. She was a wonderfully beautiful woman, and a self-effacing academic and musician, the sort of person you want to just go on forever. She was the writer of the groundbreaking book The Space Between the Notes; when I was a little lost at my first conference away from home, she took me under her wing and we sat and yakked in a student cafe about our kids and normal thing like that. She was an utter sweetheart; rest in peace Sheila.
