  1. Stanford in A Nunc...my favourite moment in the Evensong repertoire! "And to be the GLORY of thy people [you know what happens next!!]
  2. I can't see anything here - what new forum?
  3. Re my recent post enquiring about Tickells, I regret having missed this post. Apologies.
  4. Apologies - I completely missed it.
  5. Their website appears to no longer exist.
  6. I haven't seen mention of the fact anywhere, but I have reason to believe that Kenneth Tickell & Co may no longer be in business... Their website is no longer live and I found this - https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04550586
  7. I must admit I only listened once and posted my comment some time later. Still not quite sure why a whole music department has to be dismantled in order to add to the repertoire though. I have no axe to grind over Sheffield Cathedral, which I have never visited, but am disturbed by this whole business and why we are not being told everything. It sounds to me as though either someone was not up to the job, or someone was intent on finding fault wherever possible.....
  8. He wants to be using "...ALL of the Tudor repertoire, such as Purcell...." ????? 🤔
  9. Can anyone shed any light on what's going on at Sheffield?
  10. I remember being asked to play the Andantino in Db at a wedding about 40 years ago. I trotted it out at a service the week before, and afterwards, inevitably, someone said they'd enjoyed "Moonlight and Roses" I explained the origin of the piece, and from then on, the chap in question was always pulling my leg about it being called "Moonlight and Roses in Db"
  11. I am furloughed until at least the end of June. I play at an RC church in the Southwark Archdiocese and the (I imagine very few) paid DoM's are paid on the diocesan payroll for tax and safeguarding purposes. I receive regular emails from diocesan HR saying furlough has been extended a month at a time, but have no idea what is going to happen. My church is currently closed for building and redecoration work, so is not opening for private prayer, and there is a change of parish priest next month. I don't know what will happen when public services resume if singing is not allowed......
  12. Interestingly, with regard to the acoustic question, the last time I played "Master Tallis' Testament" (my favourite) in our acoustically dead building, someone totally unmusical told me afterwards that I should never play it again as it sounded awful, but they would have liked to hear it in a more reverberant building as they suspected it would sound better.
  13. Absolutely agree - but the point I was seeking to clarify (and which has been answered further up) was why have an Acoustic Bourdon (ie quinted) AND a separate Quint borrowed from the Bourdon.
