Cecil Armstrong Gibbs hated his first name and preferred to be called Armstrong.
(According to David J Brown in the Marco Polo booklet for Symphonies 1 and 3.)

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
The 100-articles-for-free option must be a more recent change.
I remember that this was not possible when I first noticed this resource.
As I have no longer access to our university library this is most welcome!

In 2016 Swedish Radio P2 did broadcast a programme celebrating his 100th birthday which included an 18-minute-excerpt (Overture, movements 4-7)
Would that be okay?
8  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Commercial recordings (vintage, new and forthcoming) / British Clarinet Concertos on: April 14, 2020, 08:46:53 pm
Dear members!
I‘ve been googling a bit on Ruth Gipps recently and found this notice of a forthcoming recording:
https://www.tashmina.co.uk/news/robert-plane-to-record-with-bbc-scottish-and-martyn-brabbins/
Robert Plane is the renowned soloist in concertos by Ian Hamilton, Richard Walthew and Ruth Gipps.
The notice is from April 2019 so the recordings should already have taken place.

The Joubert Requiem, - great.  Thank you.  Before I get to the piece myself, how would you evaluate it?

Greg, I am sorry, I haven‘t listened to the requiem myself yet.
I did upload this recent BBC broadcast just because Joubert is one of the better known composers of his generation and held in high esteem by members of this board. We have some of his works in Albion‘s archive but not this one yet.

My first acquaintance with Joubert was via a BBC broadcast of the first symphony. The dramatic thrust impressed me but I couldn‘t quite figure out wether Joubert‘s music had a strong enough personality on its own. The piece still convinces me though.
In his later music there is a tendency to rely too much on sequence. This is especially annoying in his songs. (A CD was released by Toccata Classics.) Sequencing a phrase is a technique to emphasize a statement. However, by making too much use of it the good intention is in danger to become thwarted.

And right today is my 75th birthday...

And you are spending this very special day here with us?
All best wishes and many happy returns!

Thank you, Christopher!
This seems to be correct. The German title was given as „Der goldene Reif“, an old, formal word for crown or ring. Maybe someone translated this into English as „tire“ without exactly knowing about this old meaning of „Reif“. The similar German word „Reifen“ means „tire“.

I have uploaded a short suite from Boris Lyatoshinsky's opera "The Golden Tire". (Also called The Golden Ring. I am not sure about this.)
The young Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv programmed this for her concert with the Düsselforfer Symphoniker.
As far as I know there is no commercial recording of this suite so perhaps the Lyatoshinsky enthusiasts will be delighted.
15  MUSIC OF ALL ERAS / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Ruth Gipps - Symphony No. 2 on: February 14, 2019, 09:59:02 pm
Ruth Gipps's 2nd Symphony has been given a live performance in Sweden in November last year.
Swedish Radio P2 is going to broadcast this event the coming Wednesday:
