Musical Opinion

Recommended Posts

As a keen collector of books and journals relating to the organ, I have long sought an opportunity to browse back numbers of Musical Opinion. I understand that before WW 2 there was often good debate in the columns of that publication,debate to which some of the leading lights in the organ world contributed. I have never seen such volumes advertised for sale or disposal. Do any members of this forum know where such volumes can be found? I don't really want to spend hours in the British Library (especially since it is a long way from Gloucester!) Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

 

Back numbers of "The Organ" do occaisionally surface - I'm slowly building up my collection - but I don't recall seeing any recent adverts for Misucal Opinion.

 

I know that Cambridge University Lirbrary has a full set of both - and I'm pretty sure that the RCO library & British Organ Archive (both currently in Birmingham) have sets. Maybe there's a university library in your area that can help.

 

Every Blessing

I am putting up for sale on e-bay an archive of "The Organ A quarterly review for its Makers, Its Players & its Lovers" from 1926 -1952 - may be of interest to members with an historical bent. Articles not only about UK organs but Continental and USA and elswhere. There are 59 magazines and listed ( Same publishers as "Musical Opinion")
