A new blog

Welcome! This blog will keep a record of musical activities at St John's Cathedral, Salford - what we've been doing and what's coming up, and some thoughts on the musical planning process. Hopefully in time there will be some ideas and resources that might be of help to parish musicians too. Things will grow slowly, so keep coming back to check. For now, if you look in, leave a note to say you've found this blog. It will encourage us to keep adding to the content!

  2. Than you Martin, what a good idea. It will be nice to know what is coming up. Does this mean we are going to be hearing some concerts and organ recitals like they have at other cathedrals. You see it all the time when you are on holiday, there is always something going on, so why not Salford.

  3. This will be a good place to mention what's coming up in the way of organ recitals, etc. - Anthony's going to write about what he's been doing and what's planned.

    As for choir concerts, well... who knows? At the moment our next planned event is the Christmas concert! But we did talk last year about a summer concert, and maybe it will happen yet.

  4. So.....what did you do on the 3rd Sunday of Easter then? :-) Actually, it would be even better if you could post your music list a few weeks ahead of the Sunday it's planned for, so that those of us who are less organised can crib from it. :-)

  5. A few weeks ahead?! I'm afraid I'll be that organised when I'm strumming my harp in heaven, but not likely before. But you're quite right - this blog is going to be pretty useless unless I get the information out before the event once in a while! I'll do my best. In the mean time there are some good planning resources out there. Perhaps I'll assemble a post, but for now look out for The Society of St Gregory and St Louis University.

    Hope that helps!

    I must say I quite fancy us doing a bit more extra-curricular stuff. Well done Mr/Mrs Anonymous. They do have a point - it happens at the other end of Chapel St. quite a lot. Trouble is we'd need to open up the central space - Tricky one that unless we could make the Altar behave like a Wurlitzer!
