    Perhaps this could be compiled in the form of a necrology.

    Let's add Nick Gale too, please.

    It would also be handy to have the days of Burial as well, then we can arrange Anniversary Requiem Masses (EF) on either of those days (If permitted by the Rubrics).

    We have been arranging 1st and 10th Anniversary Requiems for members of our community.

    If you add names, would you please place them in sequence according to month and day?
  • Don't forget Guido of Arezzo -
    who said that everyone who used his newly invented staff (which made it possible to learn in two years what formerly took ten ) would be so grateful for it that they would pray for his soul.
    Pray for Guido. Where would we be without Guido's staff?
    (And, it never hurts to remember the faithful departed who left us our treasured musical patrimony.)

    Batch one for me, will be back with more. Added Kenneth Blue, my first organ teacher, Dr. Robert "Bob" Schaffer, for half a century director at the Cathedral Basilica in Covington, KY (and father of the current director), Dr. Helmut Roehrig, also of Cincinnati, director at Christ the King, professor of music at XU, and founder of the Musica Sacra chorus, and finally Harold R. Conti, for fifty years organist at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Massillon, OH.

    Still looking for a date for my predecessor at my present parish, and several composers.

  • Gamba,

    Please tell us if Mr. Conroy was your immediate predecessor!
    If he were, this would constitute two Organist/Choirmaster persons in nearly 100 years.

    No, not immediate, but thank God, the last predecessor to have passed away. He was followed by a series of interims, then the position was split for a time into DoM/organist, and my immediate predecessor as organist served from 1971-2017. Now the positions are again combined, but nevertheless, there has been amazing continuity, with the gorgeous 1890 organ escaping the five or ten replacements one would expect over 120 years.
  • Wow. 38 years on the job is the second longest tenure in the post! See you some time in the 2050s, at your retirement party. On the one hand it must be daunting to take over from someone who has been in the position that long, but on the other hand, if a good thing was in progress, momentum is in favor of continuing a good thing.
