    12: Modern Music

    12: Modern Music

    In this episode, recorded in June 2019, Thomas and Richard talk about some of the more ‘modern’ music which was on the Choir’s programme at the end of the Easter season and around Trinity Sunday. Music discussed includes Gerald Finzi’s ‘Lo the the full, final sacrifice’, Matthew Martin’s ‘Ut unum sint’, and Francis Grier’s Missa Trinitatis Sanctae. After Thomas answers a listener question about Vespers in Latin, Richard has the opportunity to talk to some of the boy Choristers.

    11: Lent, Holy Week, and Easter 2019

    11: Lent, Holy Week, and Easter 2019

    With Holy Week and Easter—and all the work that goes into the music then—safely behind us, Thomas and Richard are able to get together for another episode of Staved Off. They discuss the concert Bach, Sorrow and Joy with The Song Company in the Crypt and Anthony Pitts’s new Agnus Dei from his forthcoming Mass. Holy Week and Easter always require a huge amount of work from Saint Mary’s Cathedral Choir, and this year was no exception. The addition of brass and timpani for Easter adds a layer of complexity, and Thomas was even required to sing at one point!

    We were able to address the questions that were sent in for this episode, about Responsorial Psalms and Mass preferences. Videos of some of the Easter performances have been posted online, which has led some Internet commenters to question Thomas’s conducting style.

    10: 2019 is a new year

    10: 2019 is a new year

    After the January break, including Thomas’s trip to Japan, the Choir is back for another year’s singing. In this episode, Thomas and Richard talk about the induction of new Choristers which recently took place. They then discuss best practices in the choice of music at school Masses, before moving on to the seeming tension between English-language hymns and Latin chants. Thomas talks about his experience running an office and how he keeps his team together. The Choristers will join forces with The Song Company for a performance of Bach’s Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden (Stabat Mater) in April, and the Scholars are off to St James’, King Street, for Evensong, part of which you can hear in this episode! For next month, please send in your questions about what you’ve always wanted to know about cathedral music.

    8: Remembrance Sunday

    8: Remembrance Sunday

    Thomas and Richard discuss Remembrance Sunday, and what will be happening at Mass this Sunday to commemorate the centenary of Armistice. But first, Thomas bemoans the fact that Bonfire Night is not observed in Australia. Then they are joined by Simon Niemiński to talk about the organ transcription he has made of F.S. Kelly’s Elegy for Strings, which he will play as the organ voluntary on Sunday. Hannah McCarthy makes an appearance to let us know about what’s going in to this year’s A Choral Christmas Celebration concert.
