  1. Yes, he did. "There will be no limits on the number of people who can attend life events, like weddings and funerals – and no restrictions on communal worship and singing." The CofE will eventually produce guidance I'm sure, but whether it will be in time for the MU Diocesan Festival that I'm playing for on Monday is anyone's guess! In the absence of any additional guidance we will follow the government's announcement I guess. James.
  2. I think they're called buttons (the leather disc/nut). You might find what you're after here: https://www.shop4musicboxes.co.uk/organ-parts--spares-81-c.asp
  3. Correct. Also the Tickell has been out of action since March, and definitely was still out of action when these videos were recorded. I believe it still is.
  4. I rather agree about Plaint! Another one from that book that I particularly enjoy is called something like On an old French Air. No, I haven't looked at the sonata Martin. I will have to get a copy.
  5. There is also "New Hart's Rules: The Oxford Style Guide" which my tutor for my Master's has recommended. https://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Harts-Rules-Oxford-Guides/dp/0199570027&ved=2ahUKEwiUucXH7-HrAhWoTxUIHb5ECDwQFjAKegQIAhAB&usg=AOvVaw3aXiqFHKmPkJ32oPay1SsL

  7. This, presumably. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-53951730 "Monks at Downside Abbey have decided to leave their home. The abbey, in Somerset, was affiliated with Downside School, which was highlighted in an Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA). The review found "appalling abuse" was inflicted on pupils and the institution tried to cover it up. A spokesman said the 12 Benedictine monks had spent six years "reflecting with sorrow on failures in the care for children"."

  9. Hi Roger I'm doing an MA in Music with the OU so I have access to the Musical Times archive. In the September 1925 issue, under the Recitals section, page 829: M. Louis Vierne, St Michael's, Tenbury - Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Bach; Pastorale and Piece Heroique, Franck; Prelude and Fugure in B, Saint-Saens; Legend, Berceuse, Carillon, and Canzona, Vierne; Cantabile, Adagio, and Toccata (Symphony No. 5), Widor. Hope that helps. James.
  10. Filmed in December alongside Carols at Kings, I believe.
  11. That's interesting Colin. Googling I came across this web page that purports to list all the subscribers shown in the back of the first edition (1855): http://www.duresme.org.uk/BIOS/h&r_subs.htm This list does include Willis, Hill ...
