Re: Copyright

In the case of Rigby, the publication date of 1933 would come into play and the music would be deemed to have been in the public domain since 2003 (under current legislation). Not 70 years after his death? See attached pdf from British Library website. Not if there is no longer anyone around to ben...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

Yes, that makes sense. Now, the difference between copyright and royalties? One liturgical composer I knew, ensured that his royalties – on both sides of the Atlantic – would go to his brother. Since Peter has transferred this sub-topic to another the end of another thread, https://www.ssg.org.uk/p...

Re: Copyright

On the "Liverpool Synod Hymn" thread https://www.ssg.org.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=2050&p=27482#p27475 ... ... This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the composition date, but if 1933 is correct (Rigby didn't die until 1952) then hymnary.org is wrong in st...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

But am I right in thinking one can bequeath copyright to another? No, I don't think so. If that were the case, lots of composers' later descendants would still be living off royalties. As it is, when the composer has been dead 70 years the work becomes public domain. The whole area is of course a m...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

Ghastly! And probably holding the world record for the number of parallel fifths between melody and bass! Must have been a pupil of RVW. There's a world of difference between RVW knowing what he was doing and "breaking the rules" deliberately to achieve a certain effect, and composers who unwitting...

Re: Liverpool Synod Hymn

And click here for a true Liverpool anthem, where the tune (at least), Merseyside, was commissioned for the laying of the foundation stone of the Metropolitan Cathedral. You’ll have to spool forward to 1’53”. This tune is normally named KING DIVINE. I don't know of any hymn book that gives the comp...

So it's £6,200 for 280 hours (cathedral) per annum plus 30 hours (diocesan events).
So that's about 57% of the going rate in this part of the world.

For those having difficulty finding the ad on the cathedral's website (some sections have not been updated for some considerable time), go to https://stmariecathedral.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/10th-February-2019-5th-Sunday-per-annum-C.pdf and scroll down to page 4. No salary is mentioned in the...

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

What is to stop people singing from a book as they process, and simply popping it under their arm or in a pocket as they receive? Quite difficult to lift a chalice to your lips with a hymn book tucked under your arm.... Yes, it's possible, but the movement is constrained and can lead to accidents.

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Totally agree, HP. But they don't have to have zillions of words to be reasonably long. See examples above. Agree. And for High Peak and others who are worried about loads of words, it all depends on what those words are and how memorable the whole thing is. When people say they think long response...

Re: Communion Processionals – Revived

Yes, we use a few pieces from Psallite. But I'm not sure it includes the sort of pieces I'm thinking of. I'm looking for longer refrains, something they can get their teeth into. Really just looking for recommendations of what works well in other places. Quite a few of the Psallite antiphons are ac...

Re: Pipe organ St John's Cathedral, Salford

The question that I have never found an answer to is why the original 4-manual instrument was ditched in favour of the Compton in the 1930s. Perhaps Martin can enlighten us.
