Although not really the place to do this, may I be excused please for asking if anyone has a copy of

 

ACA 502

Geoffrey Bush- "Anthems, Canticles, Carols and the Trumpet Tune etc "

Canterbury Cathedral Choir/Allan Wicks/David Flood.

 

It's a vinyl LP, and anyone who would sell me a copy I would transfer it to CD for them. I have a very high end turntable.

 

Thanks!

If all alse fails try Colin Brownlee on 0191 236 9808. He almost certainly will have a copy and will be able to provide you with what you want.

Many thanks, and yes I know. Unfortunately he did not wish to part with the record. I have everything of Canterbury except this, including some unique one off acetates of the choir. Hopefully some day...... I may simply have to advertise.

Have you also got (available from the Canterbury Cathedral on-line gift shop) the DVDs of a series of programmes that ITV did about Canterbury Cathedral) a couple of years ago? Well worth having. A lot about the choir and music, and of particular interest to me because, at that time, one of the lay-clerks was a former chorister of mine and the son of one of the present members of my choir.

 

There is a very early recording of the Canterbury choir singing (I think) the Vaughan Williams Mass (under Campbell?) in which the treble soloist became variously an atheist, a lawyer and a house drummer at Ronnie Scott's. He is now am honorary curate at one of Brighton's more famous Anglo Catholic churches (and an extremely fine jazz drummer).

Yes I have them. All good stuff. Canterbury did and still does excellent stuff, IMHO as good as any Cathedral Choir. It's a great shame (in two senses of the word) that more has not been ressiued on CD. Another two recordings which I have never tracked down (among many more that I have :D ) are two BBC broadcasts of Evensong in the 70s. One they did Dyson in D, the other Wood in F. Both I heard but was unable to record then, as only a small boy. They reside in my head somewhat!! Again you would think someone did record them out there though.

 

The Vaughan Williams/Britten LP was indeed done under the reign of Campbell.
