It is probably worth reminding members that in order to locate a particular piece of British music uploaded and made available thereby for downloading the first port of call is the Catalogue compiled over several years by Albion (John). This can be located by going to Page 1 of the British and Irish Music section of "Downloads by Nationality" and clicking on the Mediafire link. That opens up an alphabetically organised series of sub-folders containing links to each piece of music.

Albion was not able to visit the forum for much of 2018 but I know that he has already copied many if not all works uploaded last year and made these separately available from the Catalogue.

Rather than searching through past posts the Catalogue should be consulted first.

It is also worth remembering that this is the finest, most comprehensive collection of British music available for free download in existence anywhere!! It remains an incredible testimony to the generosity of those members who uploaded (and continue to upload) their private collections for the benefit and enjoyment of others! The catalogue we owe to Albion and the vast amount of work he put/puts in to create the collection.

Many thanks for the kind comments. I have tried to keep on top of the various broadcasts but, due to health reasons, have not been as rigorous as I would ideally like. Therefore, could members who upload off-air material please ensure that any links provided remain valid.

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

At long last I have belatedly added the Canadian Rhapsody, Op.67 (1905) by Alexander Mackenzie to the archive, by far the most significant "new recording" in the BBC Composer of the Week survey of his music. I have also uploaded an mp3 of the Youtube performance of Parry's Judith, although this is not, as yet, listed in the catalogue...

That sounds wonderful! I'm always up for more Mackenzie. But I can't seem to find it in the Downloads Catalogue
