Morning all,

 

For anyone not already aware BBC Radio 3's broadcast of Choral Evensong on Wednesday coming (5th July) will be live from Durham Cathedral. It will, of course, also be James Lancelot's last CE broadcast from Durham Cathedral before he retires after 32 years on 16th July.

 

I did express hope, on the "Appointments" thread, that Canon Lancelot might be made Organist Emeritus for his long service to the cathedral and I still hope that this will be the case.

 

Dave

IMHO, he  certainly deserves that position, knowing him quite well, the sheer work he has done at the Cathedral, over the years, and the personal sacrifices I presume he has made, are in themselves   are  deserving.

 

On a non organ topic, just the other month, I was sat in a chair, in his sitting room, with a log fire roaring, with just my dad and I, and James, sipping a drink, and talking about his up coming retirement to Tewksbury. 

A great man, if I say so, and they will be difficult shoes to fill, again imho
