Justadad's Achievements


Newbie (1/3)



  1. Thanks Malcolm. I'll do that. Lawrence goes back to SF on Monday - he's at New College now for EH's retirement party - and I'm waiting to hear if Barry F has given another member here permission to release his phone number. I asked Lawrence about copyright and he said Grace will pay from its music budget, so I hope it's possible to speak with Barry before too long. Best wishes J
  2. It seems Wells no longer has copies. J
  3. Thank you, Gentlemen I have complied with both suggestions. Best wishes J
  4. Apologies if this is slightly tangential, but Justason is coming back to the UK in July, having spent three years as organist at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. 'I Have Done My Duty' is an anthem for men's voices, by Barry Ferguson, which he would like to do at his last Evensong. Unfortunately neither he nor the publishers have, as yet, been able to find the music. Can anyone here point me in the right direction, please? J
  5. I don't know if this has been posted before so please accept my apologies if it has. Christopher Herrick Organ Recital Wednesday, 19th March at 19:45 Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace (Supper and refreshments available from 17:30 at the Palace's Privy Restaurant) "The internationally acclaimed organist will give a recital in aid of the Choral Foundation organ fund on the historic Schrider-Hill organ, recently overhauled by Harrison & Harrison." Tickets £12 available online from www.hrp.org.uk Call 0844 4827799 Several years ago, when Justason was Justoutofnappies, he was asked to dep for a depping choir at Kingston Parish Church for a service of Evensong. Justamum and I turned up with Justason on the preceding Saturday so he could familiarise himself with the Frobenius, only to find someone sat on the bench doing their stuff. I hesitantly explained that Justason had to prepare for a service the next day, and the gentleman kindly removed himself. Some weeks later I learned that the kind gentleman was, indeed, Christopher Herrick: a gentleman indeed, and a very fine organist. I don't know what the programme is but I hope you'll consider joining Justamum and I on Wednesday. Best wishes J
  6. Very many congratulations, Robert! J
  7. Not so much appointments, perhaps, as vacancies; but Justason returns to the UK in July having spent three years as organist and assistant director of music at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco (3rd largest Episcopal Cathedral in the US, and 5th largest of all, with a good Aeollian Skinner whose console is in my profile pic). As far as I know they have not advertised the vacancy, yet, but if anyone (preferably FRCO, but certainly ARCO with the emphasis on accompanist rather than recitalist) was interested I'm sure you'd have no trouble finding somewhere to send your c.v. Good luck! J.
  8. Umm ... I think it is a browser issue rather than a security issue. I use Chrome and that's working fine. I tried it in Firefox and that's fine too. But when I tried Internet Explorer I got more or less the same problem; I could change the text colour, but I could not change the font and I could not paste in content. I conclude that the new interface wasn't tested with Internet Explorer. So, my strong recommendation is, download Google Chrome https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/ Best wishes J
  9. Has anyone posted this? It's the authorised version. http://www.llandaffcathedral.org.uk/documents/CathedralchoirredundanciesofficialPR.pdf Happy Christmas J
  10. It seems to be common, if not compulsory, that Choir Masters and Directors of Music retain the title of Organist, while their organists have to make do with being Assistant Organists. Why is that? When a brilliant Production Director is promoted to Managing Director they don't cling to their former title and oblige the new Production Director to be called Assistant Production Director. I assume, therefore, that there is some profoundly important reason why Conductors are called Organists and Organists are called Assistant (or, worse, Sub) Organists, of which I am ignorant. I expect enlightenment will be swift (and hope it will not be too painful). Best wishes J
  11. A good guess, all the same. It is the Hymne d'Action de Grâce. J
