‘The BDOA was founded in 1934 to advance the education of the public in the study of the art of music with reference to organ music. The Association offers advice to performers, teachers, students, churchmen and members of the public concerned with improvement in standards of performance, and in playing the organ. During each year we arrange lectures, visit organs, and demonstrate the organ. Quarterly, each member receives a copy of the magazine "The Organists' Review" and the local association bulletin. They also receive on an annual basis a directory of Members, which shows organists who are available to deputise for church organists and others, and a card showing a programme of events for the year.’

‘In 2002 a group of keen singers with good sight reading skills were looking for a choir to challenge them musically, both as individuals and within a small group. Handful was founded to fill that gap in Bath. From the outset we have covered an eclectic repertoire, from early to contemporary composers, close harmony to larger scale classical works whilst at the same time giving individuals opportunities to perform as soloists or in very small numbers ... The choir is 16-20 strong, of a size that can sing eight part works. Singers will therefore be able to hold what is effectively a solo line within a complex polyphony.’

Clifton Diocese Music Service ‘is based at Clifton Roman Catholic Cathedral in Bristol, where we provide a wide range of music for Masses and other celebrations at the Cathedral, both as a part of parish life and as a part of the wider diocese ... We have a dynamic music team here at Clifton and we aim to bring a fresh approach to music in the liturgy. We compose and arrange music for the liturgy in differing styles, so we can truly say that the music we provide ranges from plainsong to music on which the ink is still wet. Our mission is to bring ourselves and the people we meet closer to God through our music, meeting them where they are in their journey in faith, in their understanding of what music can do for them and with them in the spirit of what we sing for and with them’.
