What’s happening in December?
Marilyn Harper describes her trips to Europe accompanying choirs around a series of interesting places in ‘Our Chair writes‘ and David Wakefield describes being part of two RCO trips visiting cathedrals in the Netherlands and the UK in ‘Looking outwards’.
Our expanding website includes performances of organ music by our members. ‘Let The Music Sound’ now replaces ‘My Church’. Not everyone has a church connection and the Society wishes to encourage and welcome positive contributions from organists, choirs and singers whose affiliations may be different.
This month, Norman Harper plays Herbert Howells’ Rhapsody Op 17 No 1 on the organ of St George’s Cathedral, Southwark from last month’s My Church
The Society’s Annual Dinner was held on the 9th November and again proved to be a very successful and enjoyable evening on which we celebrated Harry Bramma’s 80th birthday. Our Guest Speaker was the Rev’d Canon Colin Boswell of St Augustine Honor Oak. A write up of this event is now here.
A successful visit to two churches in the Burnt Oak/ Edgware areas was done on Saturday the 12th November organised by Eric Shepherd. A write-up of this is here.
Gilbert Rowland harpsichord event
I have just added a write-up of this event and four of the pieces that he played, recorded by Christopher Town. The first three are about two minutes in length, the last one is seven minutes long. The link to the page is here. Gilbert has written an interesting description of the pieces that he played.
