Dr J. H. Reginald Dixon

Today is the 100th anniversary of the appointment to this church of Dr J. H. Reginald Dixon, the extraordinary musician who served here for over 60 years. We can only hope and presume that he would be very proud of the organ restoration project which now nears its completion. The significance of Dr Dixon's contribution to music at the Cathedral would be hard to overestimate, and his memory is still held dear by many of the longer-standing parishioners. Joan Johnson will give an organ recital of his music this evening (7:30pm start; admission by donation). Billington's Blog today has a feature on Dr Dixon: find out more by clicking here.
