To celebrate the Quincentenary of Loughborough Grammar School, HM The Queen visited the School on June 28th 1996 in order to officially open the "The Queen's Building" [Theatre and Drama Studio + English Department classrooms]

She specifically asked to hear a performance of the anthem specially-commissioned for the Quincentenary from the internationally renowned composer Andrew Carter, and so - I suppose - I became ipso facto :
"Organist by Appt. to Her Majesty the Queen" !

crest First "Gig"!

The first invited performance for the newly-formed [by Dr.Peter Underwood] Choir of Loughborough Grammar School - 24th March 1984.

This was an exciting project!

I was asked to re‑construct and arrange the music for a set of four French 17th century comic 'playlets', not performed for 250 years.

The writing/arranging, which started on Jan 5th, had to be completed by the beginning of February 1986 for three performances in the university theatre scheduled for the 12th, 13th, and 14th ❤ - significant dates, given that the plays are about the folly of love and marriage!!

We were also invited to perform the plays at the prestigious Institut Français in London on June 18th, to an audience of cultured dignitaries.

CHOIR RECORDINGS

Right from the initial performance of the Choir in 1984, I tried to make recordings of each event, so as to preserve for nostalgia and posterity all the hard work by us all.
At times, of course, this simply wasn't possible unfortunately.

This has built into a valuable, and much-valued, archive for me, for Peter Underwood, and for the Choristers over the years.

There are more recordings to be added.

All items listed are deliberately 'Warts and All' performances with just a couple of dedicated 'no-audience' run-throughs with the recorder running.
These are credited accordingly within the menus.

All recordings are now in  .mp3  format.

"Where shall wisdom be found?"
The Quincentenary Anthem being performed in 1996 for HM The Queen - a recording from the previous day's rehearsal, since recording 'on the day' wasn't permitted.

"Requiem" - Fauré

'Pre-USA-Tour Choral Workshop'  performance under the bâton of Bryan Anderson from the RSCM

THE 'BACK‑STORY'!

Click for a note on how this project all came about, and on the Musicians.

"Requiem" - Fauré

A performance of Fauré's 'Requiem' formed the second part of the very first Choral Workshop [October 16th 1984] under the bâton of Bryan Anderson from the RSCM.

On this occasion, Peter Underwood played the organ.
