| ||'A Collection of Resources for choir masters, organists, music ministers, or anyone interested in music. And that's quite a lot of people, from what we can tell ...'. One of the Anglicans Online group of Sites which are 'staffed by an unpaid group not affiliated officially with any church body. We write and publish AO every week because of our belief that global communications can help foster global unity in our faith. The issues that unite us are so much stronger and larger than the issues that might sometimes divide us.'|
The Site is sponsored and supported by the Society of Archbishop Justus which 'was formed in 1996 and incorporated in 1997 as a nonprofit corporation in the State of New York for the purpose of using the Internet to foster and further unity among Christians, especially Anglicans.' The Society 'operates a server in London, England, two Internet servers in Palo Alto, California USA, and another in Burlington, New Jersey, USA.'

| ||Fascinating elegantly produced and extensive website reviewing the history of choir schools in the UK. The author of the history is Anne Page who was born at Torquay, Devon, in January 1920, and now lives in Bromley: '(W)hen my eldest son was Bishop’s Chorister at Salisbury Cathedral, I was invited to attend the Cathedral School sports and afterwards the tea in the school refectory, when I had the good fortune to meet the late Dora Robertson, author of the book, Sarum Close. I was telling her how I had read and re-read her book adding that my ambition was to write a book on all the major choir schools of the country. "Oh you must – you simply must!" was her reply.|
'It was not for another 10 years or so when my family had all left home that I managed to settle down to it, not realising what a very long job it would be, even when the late Sir John Dykes Bower wrote saying, "How splendid of you to be planning a book on the history of choir schools, it will be quite a formidable task I should think." He was right ... '

| ||MESSAGE TO THE ORGANISTS
The economic and moral crisis is dangerously projecting for the future of
music and, consequently, it is making a reduction or even a collapse of
the organ activity.
This is, in my opinion, the time to unite with greater solidarity in the
2nd WORLD ORGAN DAY March 21, 2012, of which I am tenacious promoter, to
give courage and hope to us players in this art.
Above all, we should transmit, and passionately without fail, the voice of
the organ to the public, who, "dreaming" with it, will not be disappointed.
Our celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach on 21 March 2012, around the
world, will return full satisfaction and prestige to the slow and
inexorable "flowering" in the history of the organs.
From small churches to the largest cathedrals and shrines scattered all
over the Earth, the World Organ Day will be a symbol of great testimony to
the spiritual and cultural value of Creative Man.
While a part of the world is enriched with the materialistic speculation,
we could help preserve and give support to the wealth of music that
excites the human soul and that gives comfort, with the World Organ Day.
We participate in March 21, 2012, before or after that date, from the
place where we hold the church organists and music institute, with an
organ voluntary expression of free choice: a concert or a solemn liturgy,
a Masterclass, a guided tour, a conference-concert, even a group lesson
Take part of this great event on March 21, 2012, before or after that
date, from the place where you are church organist or from a music
institute, with an voluntary expression of free choice: a concert or a
solemn liturgy, a Masterclass, a guided tour, a conference-concert, even a
group lesson with students.
Then fill out the attached form with your details and send it as soon as
you can, to my e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can fill
out the card directly on the site
Your information will be posted on the calendar of events and you can
consult them directly when you want.
