I really enjoyed the Joubert Piano Concerto, such a fine composer.  Anyone who enjoys Walton, Daniel Jones, Malcolm Arnold, or George Lloyd will find much to enjoy with this composer.  Thanks for the upload.

That's pretty quick!

I wonder what happened to the promised Grace Williams Missa Cambrensis? Not to mention the equally promised remaining Daniel Jones symphonies!

I wrote to Lyrita but-as is sadly the norm-failed to get even the courtesy of an acknowledgment. We have made the point repeatedly: if record companies treat their most loyal customers with disdain how can they expect to retain the support they need to survive??

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 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.

I've read much here about this selection of downloads, but cannot find how to access it. Can anyone give me a URL, please?

Many thanks.

Go to the Downloads(by nationality) section of the forum. Navigate down to British and Irish Music. Open the first page. There you will find the full catalogue (updated to February of this year). The last page has a few more recent but uncatalogued uploads.

I have just added this major Stanford work (Via Victrix 1914-18) to our archive: I have converted it to MP3 (320 bit) and joined the files.

Well done, John😉 By all means replace my original links with a single link in the Downloads section.

Thanks to you, Colin, and the member who supplied the recording this performance will never be lost (even if it is never commercially released) as long as we can access the internet: as I said in another thread earlier, the only way to get to know these works is to hear them repeatedly and nobody can do that on a single broadcast...

Many, many thanks to britishcomposer for the upload of Ethel Smyth's splendid Mass in D.

Seconded, a very fine performance - superior to both Philip Brunelle (EMI, nla) and Helmut Wolf (audite)... I will put a copy into the archive.
