That's interesting that you sing at the Abbey. I've just read Humphrey Clucas' book "Taking Stock - The First Sixty Years" where he tells a warts and all account of goings on at the Abbey in the time of Martin Neary. Shocked

It's a great read! It would seem that you arrived as Martin Baker took over as Deputy D.O.M. or just as at the end of Neary's tenure. Can I believe all I read in this book?

Lance,

I'm going to get that book!

Thanks,
Jason

Hi, all!

Humphrey certainly writes very nicely, doesn't he? Which parts of the book did you find unbelievable? I've just re-read the Westminster portions of the book, and I find it quite a balanced and factual account of what happened with the Nearys. I think Humphrey has taken great pains not to distort the facts at all, and so I think you can take the book as a very faithful impression of the choir's feelings towards their boss at the time! I've never actually met Martin Neary myself, so I don't feel qualified to provide a personal opinion.

All the best

Benj

Just finished the last of our Elgar sessions (well, a few hours ago!). Our producer assures us it's going to be a worthwhile addition to the catelogue. The Spirit of the Lord was especially moving for me, as it always is, and the Abbey organ sounded magnificent throughout - those strings at the start: fantastic!

Sweet dreams, all!

And rest assured I will pick up that recording! Thanks for the update. One can never have too many recordings of Spirit of the Lord ! ("Those strings at the start": pure Elgarian magic !) And the Abbey organ is always thrilling to hear.

Cheers- can't wait!

Nigel and Tom, what's up? I miss your posts. Also, Nigel, you've been quiet on The Organ Forum too.

Perhaps, but you are the future of our beloved Anglican church and all its glorious musical heritage. Don't let us down. I'm not much older than you, yet I'm more involved these days in the banking scene of the "City". Alas, I don't have the time or inclination to substitute as organist in church very often. I tend to be a bit picky: either Anglican or my grandmother's Christian Science church.

Cheers!
Jason

Edited for clarity. Shocked

I agree, Nigel has been especially quiet. Perhaps it's taking time for him to settle in to his new post.
Anyway Nigel, did you get that copy of Londonderry Air?

Cheers

No, rather a cold and musically dull weekend in Oz Sad
But I did start reading "The Beat is Irrelevant", the story of Barry Rose and his time at Guildford. Very interesting!
By the way, where's Nigel ? Shocked Haven't heard from him in weeks
