  1. The hood went for £185.
  2. I think there's only 5 bidders (not including my first and final bid of £32) bidding against each other. The earlier discussion is here:
  3. I put in a bid, but it's now gone up to £104! Wish I hadn't bothered practising now.
  4. The Republic of Ireland does have postcodes. ("Eircode")
  5. Yes, but it doesn't happen in Italian. It's panino there.
  6. There's a Stabat Mater by Dandrieu (on IMSLP) - not very solemn, though. There's a simple but, I think, very effective Salve Regina by Dupre (8 short Preludes on Gregorian Tunes), And there's the slow-moving solemn Ave Maris Stella ll ("Jesus tender Mother, make thy supplication") in his 15 Pieces (Vepres du Commun). There's an arrangement of the first movement of the Pergolesi Stabat Mater in OUP's Lent and Easter Organ Music for Manuals
  7. Didn't know that - at least you know where you are with sheep.
  8. What about the opposite? I scream inwardly when I hear an Italian sandwich being called a panini instead of a panino.
  9. The none and teint are described on the College website as "experimental" mutation stops.
  10. There's also a chorale prelude on Nicea - in a book of 7 chorale preludes on English tunes by various contemporary composers published by OUP. (Also has the wonderful Rockingham by Leighton and the Rutter God rest you merry.)
  11. The Schmücke Dich borrows heavily from the accompaniment of Litany to the Holy Spirit. I don't know which came first - both are marked copyright 1958. I'd guess that the anthem came first - I'm not totally convinced by the choral prelude. However that might just be because I knew the anthem before I came across the choral preludes.
  12. I see an organ from a redundant church in Sunderland may be going to Germany. It doesn't look as if it is a particularly fine instrument. https://www-bbc-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-england-tyne-53918041?amp_js_v=a3&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s I think it's probably this one: NPOR N15147
  13. Very sad indeed. I agree that I'd miss this forum if it were to disappear.
  14. I love cathedral music and want it to continue, but as the church is facing a financial crisis, the question of "who pays for it" is a legitimate one. Is it God's will that we have choral evensongs with only one or two in the congregation, or none? Could the money be spent better in a different way - if, indeed, there is any money? Are weekday cathedral choral services sacrosanct?
  15. My village church choir has been recording hymns and anthems for the online services since Easter. There are only 15 ladies in the choir, and only 5 of them have the confidence and technical ability to record themselves at home. I add some lower parts by the wonders of multi-tracking. The results are not too bad and are, I think, better than nothing or than importing recordings from elsewhere. It does take me quite a time each week to get them done. We also have practices during the week by Zoom in which the emphasis is on chat as well as singing. I’m not sure what happens when the church re-o
