Francis Alan Jackson CBE was a British organist and composer.
Jackson was born in Malton, Yorkshire. Organist of York Minster from 1946 until his retirement in 1982, he played for the wedding of Elizabeth II's cousin Prince Edward, Duke of Kent to Katherine Worsley on 8 June 1961.
As well as having given recitals all over the world, Jackson made numerous recordings of solo organ music, and of choral music with York Minster Choir. His extensive output of sacred and secular music included canticles, anthems, hymn tunes (including East Acklam), organ sonatas and other organ pieces, monodramas, a concerto, a symphony, and solo songs. He was also the author of a biography of his teacher, mentor, and predecessor Sir Edward Bairstow entitled Blessed City: The Life and Works of Sir Edward Bairstow.
