Choir & Organ
Archived since Issue 1 Complete Archive Monthly
The leading independent magazine for all those interested in the choral and organ worlds.
Choir & Organ shines a global spotlight on two distinctive fields of creativity, celebrating inventiveness and excellence in all their forms. We aim to inspire our readers through giving a platform to conductors, organists, composers, and choirs of every kind; and showcasing the imaginative craft of pipe organ building across the centuries, critiquing new organs and tackling ethics in restoring historic instruments.
Specialist writers appraise new editions and recordings of standard repertoire and works fresh from the composer's pen, while our news and previews chart the latest developments in a changing world and present opportunities to become involved. Choir & Organ is an invitation to engage with two unique areas of music – to explore the new, and look again at the familiar.
In our April issue, the Royal Academy of Music's principal Professor Jonathan Freeman-Attwood CBE champions new investment at the organ department of London's oldest conservatoire; and Sofi Jeannin talks to David Hill about the fun of conducting choirs, her fascination with contemporary music, and the uniqueness of the BBC Singers.
Plus, how the Tudor practice of singing from a single choir lectern can impact on performers and listeners alike; 'warmth and colour' characterise Nicholson & Co.'s organ for a Victorian church in Pimlico; Poland's NFM Choir looks to expand its already wide repertoire base with a new French artistic director; renowned organist and musicologist Harald Vogel shares his continuing research into the historic organs and music of north Germany; how Truro Cathedral has developed a strong musical tradition that includes recordings, tours and outreach projects; inside the workshop of J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw; remembering Frederick Swann, a 'titan' among America's organists and church musicians; animateur and conductor Lucy Hollins; and our 2023 Festivals supplement.
