Re: Pre-recorded music in liturgy

Yes - I have become a CD operator at almost every funeral at my place in the last few years. Previous PP would not allow recorded music under any circumstances, and upset a lot of people. Present PP is well aware of this, and bends over backwards to keep people happy!

Re: Redundancy after furlough

That's where the form is from - I'm on diocesan payroll for tax and safeguarding purposes (They reclaim my salary from parish)

Re: Redundancy after furlough

Not clear. I don't think PP knows either. He seems to think I'll be back playing next month!

Redundancy after furlough

If no singing is allowed whenever churches reopen for worship, is there a real danger of paid musicians being made redundant? I am on furlough and my PP has emailed me a form to fill in stating my working hours. There is a box at the bottom saying "Redundant 1/8/20 Yes/No".......

Re: New facebook Group

Indeed they did, and mentioned it in the group! The group seems to be fulfilling a need. There has never been any question of it competing with, or apeing this group!

Re: New facebook Group

Although as SC said, it seems to be catering for a particular niche.

Re: New facebook Group

Oops! I didn't know about "Musicky...."

I would have thought twice about creating a group had I known. I honestly thought I was filling a gap, not competing...!

Re: New facebook Group

On the contrary! Re Moderation, I monitor every post and have within the last couple of days removed a topic, turned off Commenting on another, and removed a member. Not all Facebook groups are moderated well, but a great many are - and very well.

Re: New facebook Group

Absolutely - it was not intended to compete with this forum in any way. What SC said has turned out to be the case; I hope this cross fertilization will be useful all round. I also intended it to be primarily for Organists (and singers). There was an attempt some 20 years ago to start up a Catholic ...

New facebook Group

I have it on good authority that a new Facebook group for UK Catholic organists, choirs and cantors was NOT set up to compete with this forum, but rather to give such musicians a presence/platform on Facebook. If anyone is interested, do consider joining... https://www.facebook.com/groups/2321504161...

This was more down to the accent of the priest but, in one of the Triduum homilies, I swear that I heard him make reference to the Letter to the Fallopians.

Re: Pipe organ St John's Cathedral, Salford

I can remember hearing it in broadcasts, but never played it. Last time I was there was in 1994; the console was in the South aisle I think and the pipework in a west gallery. All looked pretty dilapidated IIRC. Quite a large 2-manual, with 16 8 4 Great reeds. Jardine rebuild of the old Compton whic...
