I think that the RCO have already read and digested some of what 'organists out there' are saying about them,. Not before time.
I wonder if the editorial panel of 'The Organ' and 'Organists' Review' can be similarly informed. In this regard, I admit to being a coward.
I have nothing to fear or expect from The RCO, by contrast I have (in the past) received some kind support from both organists review and The Organ - they have reviewed my CDs and published these. I cannot afford to alienate them, I'm afraid. Besides, it feels like biting the hand that fed me.
I have lots to say about these two glossy publications but chicken out! I did collar Richard Popple of the IAO on the subject when I saw him recently at a private function. I bet he wishes he hadn't asked what I think. It was a pretty comprehensive and vehement opinion!
