Justadad Posted December 5, 2006 Share Posted December 5, 2006 I hope you will not mind too much a question borne of ignorance from an organ scholar's dad. A few months ago I put links on another board (ABRSM) to some video clips of my son playing Britten's Jubilate in C and Campbell's Oh Be Joyful in a service at the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace. I filmed it with the gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen, and just thought other young organists might be interested to see it. It was pointed out to me, quickly, by another contributor that I was in breech of copyright as neither composer had been dead for 70 years, and shortly thereafter the Moderators removed the thread. I have just spent a delightful hour or so listening to downloads from the website of a contributor here whose link is in his signature, and whose site lists several live recording of various cathedral choirs he has accompanied playing, inter alia, Howells. So I'm confused. If I were to post, with his consent, a video clip of my son playing A Wills, from music which he has bought, would I be in breech of copyright law? If The clip was the Howells Collegium Regale Mag & Nunc canticles (with that wonderful, caged-tiger Gloria) would I need permission of the DoM and all the Gentlemen and Boys (notwithstanding the fact that ot would be polite to ask)?
