  1. One of George Thalben-Ball’s 113 Variations on Hymn Tunes requires a high note held throughout. I don’t have the music to hand, but I seem to recall it is Irby? There were specific instructions on the relevant page. I have always used a piece of paper folded the necessary number of times to achieve the objective. Tony
  2. A nice obit. from The Telegraph. Tony
  3. Is this RC or CoE? The latest I have for the Catholic Church is this, of 18 March. Tony
  4. I think it's Banks Music Publications. See down the page here. Tony
  5. Try Banks for the Oxford Archive, Martin. Tony
  6. It is possible a copy may be available to purchase from: https://bradfordorganists.org.uk/sheet-music/ Tony
  7. I wonder if this article in the Daily Telegraph relates to the matter Denis has raised? https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/05/19/westminster-cathedral-putting-heritage-risk-sending-choir-boy1/ Tony
  8. I played the instrument at St. Mary's, Strawberry Hill, for three years as a student from 1972-75. At the time it was suggested that it was the last Kingsgate Davidson built, and, as such, incorporated a lot of remaindered pipe-work from their work shops. I've never been able to verify this though!
  9. Appointment of new Director of Music Posted: 19 Jun 2018The Dean of St George's Cathedral, Southwark is delighted to announce that Jonathan Schranz has been appointed to be the Cathedral Director of Music with effect from January 2019. Canon Richard Hearn says, "Jonathan will bring a great deal to the role and I am confident that he will build upon the great work that his predecessor Norman Harper has done both in developing the choir and enhancing the music tradition at St George's Cathedral".

  11. St. Jude's had a quite wonderful Tuba rank if I remember correctly?
  12. Thanks, SL. This is a fascinating thread. There is a quote from St. Augustine in the Catechism of the Catholic Church #1157: “How I wept, deeply moved by your hymns, songs, and the voices that echoed through your Church! What emotion I experienced in them! Those sounds flowed into my ears, distilling the truth in my heart. A feeling of devotion surged within me, and tears streamed down my face – tears that did me good.”. The plainchant Missa de Angelis was considered very avante-garde when Pius XI encouraged its use by the laity in 1928. In reality, Pius XI, and, as a consequence the Church
  13. Might this just be a reflection of the 'three-fold' manner in which the plainsong Kyrie was sung? Kyrie thrice: Choir, Choir+Congregation, Choir Christe thrice: Choir+Congregation, Choir, Choir+Congregation Kyrie thrice: Choir, Choir+Congregation, Choir It now tends to be two-fold in these 'modern' times. Choir followed by Choir+Congregation for each of the Kyries and the central Christe. Tony
  14. I played the HJ at St. Mary's, West Croydon, for a couple of years 1975-77, whilst I was teaching at the Secondary School next door. I would agree with your comment, David. It was dull, but relatively forceful. Tony
  15. A tragic loss of a fine young musician who was devoted to his duties. His expertise, especially in the world of Gregorian Chant, will be sorely missed. http://en.radiovaticana.va/news/2015/03/11/english_catholic_musician_killed-in_hit_and_run_collision/1128565 Requiescat in Pace Tony
