I wrote this tribute to Rupert Neve on my Facebook page back in February. I have admired his excellence in the mastery of recorded sound for years. I have only just begun to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve such quality in my own music, and will one day attain that goal!
Rest In Peace, Mr. Rupert Neve. You are a shining example of how a Christian can be the best of the best in his field, with an unparalleled standard of excellence in his craft that even non-believers worldwide respected.
Your work also revolutionized the performance and recording of music in church, which before your time was among the most difficult places to mix for, record, and even broadcast. Your kingdom building philanthropy was also a blessing to many. I pray that your company continues to exhibit your values as it continues to prosper and be a beacon of excellence in sound!
I also pray that I can achieve your level of excellence in my compositions. I will work tirelessly until I do!
Look forward to meeting you one day soon!
