Second leak: ‘Woman to be Master’main
First, the Establishment leaked to the Daily Mail. Now it has followed up with a tip to the Sunday Times that Judith Weir is to be the next Master of the Queen’s Musick, the first woman to hold that post.
We’re delighted, and congratulate her with maximal warmth. We wish, however, that the process could have been more transparent, involving a broader range of opinion, especially about women composers.
