This includes our vast British and Irish Music Archive which is without parallel on the net.
It is, or indeed isn't. A real treasure cove.

I enjoy this forum but it's a little like communicating with someone on the outer fringes of the Solar System - you post a message and, if you're lucky, get a response several weeks later.

You must appreciate that this forum has a comparatively small membership compared to, say, GMG and and an even smaller number of "active members". There are those who find the range of topics discussed too narrow. There are those who find the absence of heated debate or rancorous discussion too polite and not lively enough for their needs.

I have posted more than anyone else on here but (a) I had a serious illness three months ago and am trying to cut down on the time I spend sitting in front of my pc, (b) I have been away from home for a week, and (c) our own musical tastes and views are so akin, Jeffrey, that repeatedly posting "I agree" would be unedifying

Many of my posts get little if any response but that is just something one has to accept

.....and-if you are seeking any disagreement -while I do agree that the Philip Spartley Symphony No.3 is both excellent and highly enjoyable I do not find the last movement in the slightest"Brucknerian"

One thing I like about this forum is that it is totally driven by the contributors.. we don't have a moderator posting topics and then arguing with the members about what is or what should be..  it is somewhat like sending a message out into outer space and getting a response months or weeks later... but that is the beauty of the forum....  enjoy !!

Colin - very sorry to hear about your illness and wishing you a speedy and full recovery. Our blazing online row about Philip Spratley's Third Symphony can wait!

I take your point about this forum which I still enjoy despite the Marie Celeste-type ambience.

All best wishes
Jeffrey

Thank you and I agree.

I'm having to have a glass of wine to calm my nerves after all the activity on this page  Cool

Sorry, after decades from being banned from using sarcasm as a teacher I am trying to make up for lost time!

Genuinely appreciate responses though - thank you  Smiley
