  • What individual, sitting in the ‘cathedra’, made the decision to appoint them, albeit after a competitive process?

    • I would expect Jeffrey Skidmore had a fairly major say. And hell, what does he know about choral conducting, eh?

  • No doubt they are already pre booked for BBC Radio 3 and 4, plus the “greatest music festival in the world” (BBC) The Proms.
