I may attempt to contact John. He is still my Facebook friend, though he hasn't posted on there lately either. I hope he's well, as he seems terribly nice and one day I hope to meet him and spend long hours talking about British music.

It is only prudent to point out to members that the British and Irish Music Archive on this site has been effectively "frozen in time" now for almost a year. The Archive was assembled-with enormous effort-by Albion (John). He also compiled the huge catalogue. It represents, quite probably, the most impressive and comprehensive collection of British music in existence and available to members of this forum to download for their personal enjoyment.

For whatever reason Albion has not been "on the forum" since February. He has not been able to respond to pms or emails. What this means is that the Archive has not been updated since then. More seriously it means that there may be the possibility that it could simply disappear since the vast number of pieces are stored on Albion's Mediafire account. If that was closed-again for whatever reason then the contents would no longer be available for download.

All would certainly NOT be lost! First of all, the individual compositions were uploaded originally by members and the overwhelming majority are still available from them on their own Mediafire or other similar uploading sites. Secondly, I downloaded most of the music to my own hard drive (as have others, including Latvian!). Most could therefore be restored, reuploaded for new members or others who had perhaps either lost their copies or developed a new interest in a particular work.

And although the catalogue is "frozen" there have been few new uploads over the past year and those that have been provided by members can be found on the last page of the Downloads thread.

There is therefore no need for serious alarm.....which is of course not to say that we do not regret and are concerned about Albion's absence from the forum!

I have just uploaded the first movement of the 1st piano concerto of Volodymyr Pukhalsky (1848-1933).

A couple of online bios list him as Belarusian or Polish or Russian.

A few bios:

Pukhalsky, Volodymyr [Пухальський, Володимир; Puxal’s’kyj], b 2 April 1848 in Minsk, d 23 February 1933 in Kyiv. Teacher, pianist, and composer. In 1874 he graduated from the Saint Petersburg Conservatory, and in 1876 he was appointed director of the Russian Music Society’s school in Kyiv. From 1913 he was a professor of piano at the Kyiv Conservatory (in 1913–14 its first director) and (from 1925) at the Lysenko Music and Drama Institute. He also performed as a pianist in Saint Petersburg, Kyiv, and Odesa. His students included Vladimir Horowitz, A. Brailowsky, and Kostiantyn Mykhailov. Among his main works are the opera Valeria (1923), the symphonic Little Russian Fantasy (1882), a piano concerto (1881; the first such work for modern piano in Ukrainian music), works for piano solo, and the Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom for choir.Пухальський_Володимир_В'ячеславович   (in Ukrainian)  (in German - calls him "Polish/Ukrainian/Russian")ładimir_Puchalski (in Polish - calles him Russian and Ukrainain)Пухальский,_Владимир_Вячеславович  - (in Russian - calls him Russian and Soviet!)

I take it that no one has heard any further news concerning Lyrita?

My email to Paul Conway has gone unanswered-which is unusual (Paul always replied to my messages in the past).
