I always enjoy KCC's offerings - how refreshing to read positive comments for a change!!  I can't quite put my finger on why, but I must confess to finding the plainsong Passion Gospel a slightly weak link though... 


Regarding the organ - has anything been done to the big Swell 8' Reed (can't remember if it's a Trumpet, Horn, or whatever)?  It seems much more evident now...

he's on sabbatical


I guessed that was probably the case - I just couldn't find any mention of it anywhere.  I have subsequently found it in a St Johm's Choir association newsletter from the autumn.

The Radio 3 Choral Evensong page for Ash Wednesday's broadcast from St John's Cambridge has John Challenger as "Acting DOM"   I can find nothing on the college website as to Andrew Nethsingha's absence....??

Talking of Canterbury, the first time I played there was for a local deanery choirs evensong with David Flood conducting.  Unfortunately, a lightning strike the previous night had knocked out the CCTV link so I couldn't see him conducting. We agreed on tempi beforehand, and it went fine until I forgot in the Stanford in C Mag Gloria David didn't want any sort of rall at the end....!
