I see from today's Church Times that Mr Tanner's job as DOM is being advertised- less than a year after he was appointed. He seems, on the basis of this broadcast, to have done a superb job at Greenwich/Trinity so far, so what's the story?
He's going to Rugby see http://www.rugbyschool.net/new-direc...usic-appointed

I think the last time Gibbons' second was on CE was from Ripon a couple of years ago, again with girls in the choir. Perhaps the younger voices at Ripon were more suited to it - but nonetheless this Chapel choir was very pleasing to hear, IMO. They made rather a good job of the psalms, didn't they?
I don't think the anthem will be picked up as a big hit around our cathedrals, but it was a pleasant enough piece.
bws to all,
And ten months later, the 'goings on' appeared not to have been in vain, judging by the small harvest of technical BAFTAs awarded to Les Miserables evening, as well as one for supporting actress.
