E in quanto ad anniversari e ricorrenze, a quarant'anni esatti dalla prematura scomparsa molti ricordano oggi Alan Gowen (1947-1981), figura carissima e nota a tutti i canterburysti di questo mondo (ma non solo). Tra questi Jonathan Coe, che così twitta: "Forty years ago today, Britain lost one of its most original composers, performers and improvisers. Alan Gowen died of leukaemia OTD in 1981, at the age of thirty-three. RIP Alan, whose music has been part of my life for more than four decades, and has formed a background to much of my writing."
