May I always listen to the Anniversary Waltz...


Not only has David MacDonald, seen above, correctly identified Thomas Tallis as the trending mystery composer, but he also devotes a segment on his latest SoundNotion.tv podcast to the vexed question of What do composer anniversaries achieve? - watch on YouTube from 59.00”. Site traffic data, Facebook endorsements and re-tweets show a high level of interest in my posts on composer anniversaries, while the SoundNotion.tv coverage confirms the topic is newsworthy. But, predictably, there have been no links from vertically integrated sources, and I do not expect the subject to be discussed on BBC Radio 3’s Music Matters. But I will be watching BBC TV's Panorama tonight to see if it sheds any light on another overgrown path that has suddenly become very topical.
