  11. David hi Whitlock sonata was a memorable piece played by John I was talking to Andrew Reid earlier this evening about John and Andrew said this was one of the best performances of this piece he had heard when John played it at Westminster Cathedral and Andrew commented that John used no generals and just went up and down the divisionals as necessary Simon
  12. I knew John so well this is a great overwhelming shock I was at Catz the same time as he was at Johns We had some great laughs together one of which was playing football against the Kings and John's choral scholars we always won RIP Scotty

  16. Yes - I think half of the fun of playing the Crucifixion these days is utilising just these 'non run-of-the-mill' stops. We did it last year at Nantwich and time spent registrating it beforehand was enjoyable and appreciated by singers and audience alike. Comments like 'we've never heard it make those sounds' before, were intensely satisfying. It was a good performance as well. On a side issue, Maunder's 'Olivet to Calvary' seems to be THE thing to perform in Cheshire just at the moment'
