  1. Available today in silk at £200 (cheaper than in previous years; a new supplier?) and now in artificial silk at £130. The latter doesn't appear to be in stock at present.
  2. The tune arranged by Campbell in the RSCM's Accompaniments for Unison Hymn-Singing is titled there as 'Easter Song'. 'Lasst uns erfreuen' has the EH rhythm with which most of us are accustomed, and is included in the collection, using that name, in an equally fine arrangement (which I invariably use) by Michael Fleming.
  3. Sorry, no. Suite 'Laudate Dominum' dates from 1961 (as S_L says), some eighteen years before my studies with him. I'm afraid this is not quite accurate. His obituary in The Times last year mentioned that he was runner-up to Marie-Claire Alain in the improvisation contest at the Geneva International Music Competition in 1950. Moreover, improvisation continues to play an important part in the St Albans International Organ Festival. A little bit of research on the IOF website reveals that Catharine Crozier wrote in the Musical Times, August 1963: the IOF "was the first of its kind
  4. Easter Day from Sheffield Cathedral 2018 (BBC 1)
  5. I'm afraid to say that this is old news. As 'bam' has correctly said, I posted details of the firm's last organ in 2018.
  6. Good news and bad news: https://www.sheetmusicwarehouse.co.uk/classical-organ/jesu-olugbala-original-compositions-new-series-no-187/
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Joys Seven? There's a 4-pt arrangement of it in 100 Carols for Choirs, while the original 8-pt version is available separately.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Dr Webber stepped down in April. Dr Christopher Robinson was Acting Precentor for the Easter Term now finished.
  15. There are three (I think) brief works by Roxanna Panufnik. Kyrie cum Jubilo found its way into my repertoire, by request.
