Times obituary for Mary Berry and Requiem details

Times Online has an obituary for Mary Berry. An extract:
... all was not well with the Church she loved. In the surge to modernise, much had been lost: the Latin language, the liturgy, music and the chant. She felt that a tradition and culture was on the brink of destruction and what could she, a convert who had been received into that tradition, do about it?
Well, thank God for the great work that she did.

In accordance with her will, there will be two Requiem Masses: in the newer form of the Roman rite at Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge, and in the older form at St Birinus, Dorchester. Details at the Schola Gregoriana website.
