George Richford to Romsey Abbey

Robert Fielding (who was my organ teacher when I started out) spent quite a few years there and I didn't realise he had gone. Has he retired, or simply gone elsewhere? And when did he finish?

As far as I know, he is still in-post, until the end of term. I believe that he is moving into property developing. (He has also run a wedding car hire firm for a number of years.)

 

George Richford was formerly Director of Music at Saint Mary's, Newark, Notts.

Dr. Stephen Tympany has been appointed Organist & Master of the Choristers at Armagh Cathedral (CofI), in succession to Theo Saunders. Stephen has been covering for some time while Theo was on sick leave. He has been a leading light in church music in Northern Ireland for many years and was for a long time in charge of the music at Banbridge Parish Church. This sounds to me to be a very good appointment.

A quick heads-up: the music list on the website of Exeter Cathedral says that tomorrow (10th January) at 4pm will be the installation of Tim Noon as the new DoM. The music list for this service reads:

 

Responses: Bernard Rose

Hymns: 57, 48 (NEH)

Psalm: 46

Canticles: Herbert Brewer in D

Anthem: There shall a star (Mendelssohn)

Voluntary: Final (Symphonie I) - Vierne

 

The service sounds like it may be a fairly full house as it also includes the installation of the new headmaster of the Cathedral School and new choristers.

 

I would probably go if I didn't live in Bristol as I have never heard either Brewer's Canticles or the anthem by Mendelssohn.

Brewer in a D is a fun setting - very Elgarian - and the Mendelssohn is likewise a good sing and a good listen.  Bristol is only up the road - you should go!

... absolutely... and the Vierne will be a good romp too! Didn't they have a new 32ft reed when Exeter was rebuilt? If so, you'll have a chance to hear that in this piece for sure!

There has been quite a clear-out (or should it be exodus?) from Newcastle Cathedral in recent years. Scott Farrell and James Norrey to Rochester and now the departure of Michael Stoddart. Perhaps there's unfavourable news regarding the restoration of the pipe organ?

I see that Exeter Cathedral are advertising for an Assistant DoM in today's church Times.  Does anyone know what's happening to David Davies?

The new 32ft. reed (Contra Trombone, an extension of the existing Trombone) arrived at the previous rebuild, in 1999-2000. It is a useful stop and, despite being half-length in the 32ft. octave, is a suitable foundation to the tutti. Low B is an odd, slightly unpleasant note, otherwise the stop is well worth having.
