Music Website News
with KEITH BRAMICH
This week's visit to some of the world's music websites has a shamelessly
British theme ...
Fransnet Internet & Photo
Some interesting material can be found on the UK's Fransnet Internet & Photo site ... one wedding and a funeral, (comments about the wedding of
the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Cardinal Hume's funeral), information
Burrowes (a former head chorister at St Paul's in London), and a page
all about churches
A new page for the UK-based tuba-euphonium ensemble Tubalaté
has been made by composer David Solomons at www.dws.ndirect.co.uk/tubalate.htm and includes some samples
of their music in RealAudio.
Nigel Hess - a UK composer working in TV, theatre and film - has a website
of the 'self-built' kind at ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/Nigel_Hess/homepage.htm
Amici Chamber Choir
The Amici Chamber Choir is a London-based amateur group of around 25
singers with a very high standard of music-making. Their conductor is Gary
Peacock. Their simple but effective website is at www.amicichamberchoir.org.uk
London Concert Choir
Another London-based choir - the London Concert Choir (conductor Mark
Forkgen) - has a website at www.london-concert-choir.freeserve.co.uk . Lots of information
here, including details of the LCC's composer in asssociation - Cornish-born
Royal Holloway presents Janácek's Brno
The Music Department at the University of London's Royal Holloway College
has an interesting website - we have mentioned it before - at www.sun.rhbnc.ac.uk/Music/. Details of a forthcoming music
conference in October - A Tale of Three Cities: Janácek's Brno
between Vienna and Prague - are at www.sun.rhbnc.ac.uk/Music/Conferences/Janacek/ .
The London Concertante - a young chamber orchestra based in the UK -
performs regularly at London's St. Martin-in-the-Fields and on the South
Bank and has a website at www.cgrist.demon.co.uk .
The Band That Money Couldn't Buy
Finally, if you scour the pages of paul.merton.ox.ac.uk/music/ - the music pages of the OXymoron
Humour Archive - you may discover some new on-line musical humour, although
I think most of this has previously appeared elsewhere!
