In case there are any old choristers of Peterborough Cathedral using this forum (or anyone else who might be interested), I thought you might like to know that a Peterboro Cathedral choir archive broadcast (1972, under my dad's direction) is being transmitted at 4pm on Weds this week (13th Dec) on BBC R3. Details on my web site: http://www.stanleyvannmusic.org.uk/choral_evensong.htm. I believe that the programme will also available for download (for those with a broadband connection!) from http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/choralevensong/ for a week after the transmission.
Best wishes, and happy Christmas to all, Martyn

I recently was loaned a very old cassette recording of a transcription of the WIlliam Tell Overture recoredd on the Peterborough organ. The cassette (a home recording) was dated 1959. I wondered at the time whether this was played by Stanley Vann. Might you be able to shed any light on this please?

Nigel

I'm sorry, I have no idea, Nigel. My dad was certainly Organist & MoM in '59. I'll see if he can shed any light! Martyn

I'm certainly looking forward to it. My connection with Peterborough post-dates his time at the Cathedral, but I did sing in the concert Peterborough Chamber Choir gave to mark his 90th birthday, and the Peterborough performance fo the Billingshurst Mass. I hope he is well?

Martyn, I don't know if you've seen teh Wikipedia article on him (largely my work I confess), loosely based on your website, and other bits and pieces I found via google (hopefully without infriging anyone's copyright). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanley_Vann

Hello, David. Yes, I have seen the Wikipedia info - & wondered who wrote it! I recognised a lot of the material, of course, but was interested to see that someone had kindly awarded dad the OBE! Sadly, this is not the case! He is well, thanks, but at getting on for 97, has slowed down a lot. Glad to hear you were involved in the Mass & concert (- I was there). Best wishes, Martyn

I wasn't quite sure about ti myself, one of the sites I found via google gave it him, I tried to check via the London Gazette website, but the search is not very relaible, so i wasn't sure one way or the other (it would not be undeserved in any case. I'll take it out of the article.

The site on which I saw it was http://www.lammas.co.uk/brevis.htm (it's a fair way down the page).
