  1. Hello David - Only slightly related to your topic, but you should read "Grand Obsessions" if you haven't already. A great read based on a true story that has more than a twist related to tuning temperaments (I don't want to spoil it for you).
  2. Does something like the following google search help: site:imslp.org Organ+composers
  3. Thanks for the additional comments and observations, and good luck Andrew with your studies and preparation. For me the journey to the diploma is the most important part, I want to become a better organist and I am very much enjoying the process. I had already seen the video which gives an excellent and rather daunting insight into what's required.
  4. Thank you all - I shall sign-up at the beginning of April since this effectively gives me 15 months membership for the price of 12. Agreed also with your observation Colin although I would want to be further ahead than I am now with aural preparation to get the best value from a session with Simon.
  5. First thread I've started - please be gentle! Last year I set a goal of achieving the ARCO diploma over the next few years. It is a bit of a slow burn being in my early 40s with a busy job and a young family, however with the support of a first-class Cathedral organist I am making progress with my playing. I am practicing the other keyboard tests, although one area that fills me with dread is the aural! I was wondering to what extent the RCO resources would provide me with some practice tests and other resources to help me improve my aural in preparation for this? I am reluctant to join the RCO only to find minimal useful resources in this respect.
  6. I would highly recommend AKG K712 Pro Reference Studio headphones which I use with my digital organ (and are general considered the top of the pile for such uses).
