Over eight months of research, several interviews, countless further questions, 270 questionnaires analysed and a lot of writing (nearly 12,000 words!), I might well have an answer soon! The first draft of my report is finally ready to print off and start reading and editing.
I have had such an immense amount of support from organists of all ages all over the UK and am very grateful for all the thoughtful answers they’ve given me.
Thank you everyone, when it’s worth reading I will share my findings as so many people have asked.
