It has been announced that Philip Moore, Organist & Master of the Music since 1983 is to retire at the end of summer term 2008 having held the position with distinction for 25 years.

I understand he played a fine recital on Saturday evening concluding the 2007 minster recital series.

No doubt the betting shops will be open in due course with regard to a successor!

Best Wishes

Philip

And what a distinquished tenurre it has been. A more than worthy successor to Jackson and Bairstow. A player of the first rank as well and I hope that retirement will allow a few more recitals. Along with Jonathan Bielby, our longest serving Cathedral Organist. JSW and PM have proved to be a marvellous team over the past 25 years. If JSW continues as Assistant, they may go down the Liverpool, Norwich and St Pauls's route and seek a choral specialist.

As predicted by Richard, several months ago. I wish Philip a long and happy retirement and thank him for all he has contributed to Cathedral/Church music throughout his illustrious career.
