Post R.I.P. Sister Ignatius

One of the truly vital forces in Jamaican musical history, fosterer of a generation of stars, and more crucially, their backing bands.

That's not all. Horace "Pepper" Wyler, who famously spent his life in Kingston cleaning gob and phlegm out of the brass of all Jamaica's top acts of the 1940's that don't sell many records these days, died today. The world mourns.

To put it into perspective, it's kinda like if the same woman had taught Chuck Berry, Elvis and Little Richard. There would be no reggae today, in any form, without the musicians fostered at the Alpha school.

I've always been sceptical about determinist views on cultural history.

quite rightly so, but clearly Sister Ignatius did play a very positive role in the development of jamaican music

Certainly when it comes to "life-changing events/persons" and the like. You've got to think of The Alpha School For Boys as a sociological factor rather than as a random event.
