Choir & Organ meets the new director of music at Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge; introducing the work of Japanese organ builder Tetsuo Kusakari; assessing Ralph Vaughan Williams’s large-scale choral works; and celebrating the achievements of the British organ builder Mander Organs.

Plus, David Hill looks at alternative Passiontide music; the score for our new commission from NYCGB composer Joe Bates for mixed voices; Sing for Pleasure’s director Manvinder Rattan explains the need for BAME role models in conducting; Thomas Trotter pays tribute to Catherine Ennis; how digital organ builders have responded to the challenges posed by the pandemic; a new organ for St Vitus Cathedral, Prague, sits next to a claviorgan in the Spanish builder’s workshop; how Sweelinck and co. saved church music from being stifled by a zealous 16th-century religious movement; and choosing suitable organ registration for Balbastre’s Romance.
