Saturday 13th May
I was skilfully interviewed on BBC Radio Nottingham on 12 May, on their afternoon show. I'm always happy to talk about life as a cathedral organist (more relaxing now I've retired from Southwell!), and it was good to be able to get in a plug to help Chorister recruiting. They played a track from my final CD with the choir, Elgar's stirring 'Give unto the Lord', an anthem whose superb 1969 Worcester Cathedral recording under Christopher Robinson was instrumental in inspiring me to become a cathedral organist - and to love Elgar.

It was a pleasure attending Evensong at Southwell on 29th April, when my successor as Rector Chori, Paul Provost, was installed. A beautiful service, and he had the cathedral choir eating out of his hand; augurs well for the future.
