Members of this board may be interested to learn that the new CD of the organ at Worcester is now available via Ebay - follow this link. As this disk will only otherwise be available through the Cathedral Shop, this seems the most obvious way to bring it to a wider audience.

Good programme! Is this a properly pressed CD or is it a CDR as so often seems to be the case these days with Organ and Choral recordings. My player is untra sensitive and generally will not read CDRs from at least one company, not to mention the limited lifespan they have. A friend has the same problem.

 

Sorry for the grouch, but I am sure you will understand.

Thank you , Adrian - this looks to be interesting. I shall probably order a copy tonight. It is good to see a recording of the whole of a Vierne symphony.

Good. No I don't need a new CD player. Mine cost a bomb and is top of the range. That's why it wont play cheapskate inferior discs, which I am happy to learn yours is not! :P

Good morning all!

 

I'm just picking up on the suggestion that we plan a Board day-out here at Worcester sometime after Christmas. Looking in the Cathedral Diary, I am going to suggest Saturday 31st January 2009, though if this date causes problems, we may be able to look again.

 

My initial plan would be as follows:

 

10.30 am - Coffee

11.00 am - Introduction and Demonstration

12.15 pm - Tours inside the cases

1.15 pm - Lunch break

2.15 pm - Opportunities to play the organ and visit organ/music artefacts in the Cathedral Library

4.30 pm - Possible open choir rehearsal and tea

5.30 pm - Choral Evensong

 

To facilitate all this, we would charge a nominal fee of £10 which would include coffee and tea (but not lunch) which would be put towards the Music Appeal.

 

I you are interested, please let me know by replying to this message and we can then see whether the day is a viable proposition.

 

Many thanks,

 

Adrian

Sounds like a good day out to me. I'm free on that date and would be very interested.

Have at least three spaces available in a car going from Romsey if any near-natives want to save the fuel. Colin? Pcnd?

Yes please!

 

By the way, thanks Adrian for finding the time for a chat with myself and Mrs DT, and pointing out various aspects about the build on Saturday the 4th which I realise was a very busy day for you.

Don't forget to take a lot of pictures of the transept division (diaphones) while they're still there :(

 

10 Pounds for each picture. :lol:

Actually I think the suggested nominal charge of £10 is far too generous. Considering the amount you'd like to raise for the transept this is a drop in the ocean and you're offering an awful lot for the money. I would suggest that, if it is possible to go ahead with this venture, you suggest a minimum of £10 a head, throw in parking in College Green (first come first served) and it would be worth at least £20.

Would like to attend (260 miles each way!), but still trying to persuade Mrs DRD. I will keep watching the thread to see what develops.

Hi Adrian,

Please count me in for 31/01/09, what great idea! I should have some spare seats if anyone wishes to share expenses from Nth. Somerset.
