  1. Good news and bad news: https://www.sheetmusicwarehouse.co.uk/classical-organ/jesu-olugbala-original-compositions-new-series-no-187/
  2. Which episode? I played the organ decades ago, and remember the Saxhorn stop on the Solo. It's a shame there aren't more examples of it.
  3. That's certainly my understanding as well. As an aside to the matter of Oxbridge Assistant Directors of Music, more Oxbridge colleges should build on the pioneering work done at Downing College between 2015-18 by Christopher Robinson who acted as Mentor to the Organ Scholars. Downing's first Director of College and Chapel Music, David Lowe, is continuing this arrangement.
  4. Joys Seven? There's a 4-pt arrangement of it in 100 Carols for Choirs, while the original 8-pt version is available separately.
  5. As far as Cambridge is concerned, the MusB was suspended in 2011. A quick Google at Oxford University pages suggests that the BMus is no longer awarded there either.
  6. S_L's advice would seem to be the best. John Henderson's A Directory of Composers for Organ shows the publisher as being Augener, now being handled by Stainer & Bell; sadly, it's not in their catalogue. It's not in either of the two RCO libraries (RCM and Birmingham) nor, of course, on the IMSLP site.
  7. With no further information on either the Cathedral's or Harrison's websites, we'll have to wait patiently for more details to emerge in due course.
  8. It was not my intention to start any such debate. My point, however, is that both the advert and my message put the 'stepping down' in the past tense.
  9. Dr Webber stepped down in April. Dr Christopher Robinson was Acting Precentor for the Easter Term now finished.
  10. There are three (I think) brief works by Roxanna Panufnik. Kyrie cum Jubilo found its way into my repertoire, by request.
  11. He actually said, "I will never thank you enough for that."
  12. First of all, you have to be a member of the RCO in order to enter their diploma examinations. The RCO of 2019 is an up-to-date organisation, and I see from their website that the course Preparing for CRCO, ARCO and FRCO on 22 June includes "Thirty-minute aural lessons for CRCO and ARCO will be available with Simon Williams at 10:00, 10:30, 11:00 and 11:30 at a cost of £12 pounds each, payable on the day. These will be allocated in order of receipt of booking." I suggest you join and take full advantage of the resources which the College now offers.
  13. Pedant alert: as mentioned by David above, γλῶττα really means 'tongue', hence polyglot. φωνή means 'voice', and its use as a suffix in many words can easily be recognised. Chrysoglott transliterated means 'golden tongue'.
