Choir & Organ, March/April 2015


In the March/April issue, we look in on Britain’s largest surviving Georgian organ which has been restored by Goetze & Gwynn; choral conductor and composer Bob Chilcott talks to Choir & Organ about what inspires him; and, after the sensational discovery of the body of Richard III in a Leicester car park, we examine Judith Bingham’s anthem for the medieval king’s reinterment in March.

Plus, how the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain’s annual residential courses provide a positive and fun singing environment; Trondheim’s collection of magnificent restored organs; Rochester Cathedral’s Jazz Mass; two new organs by Swiss firm Orgelbau Goll; David Hill offers advice on conducting Beethoven’s Mass in C; and David Goode looks at touch in part three of his series on organ technique. Also includes our Summer Schools & Short Courses supplement taking a look at how you can learn new skills and repertoire, whether you’re an organist, a choral conductor, or a singer.
