Thanks slofstra for the suggestions. The intention is to keep the list updated, probably on a "couple of times a year" basis to remove "dead" sites, but I'm always on the lookout for sites I didn't find. I have checked out those you have provided, and will add them.

At the risk of appearing to blow my own trumpet, I've not long finished a small project for Musicweb International on downloaded and streamed classical music. http://www.musicweb-international.com/online_music/online_music.htm I haven't attempted to rate them, because that would mean subscribing to ...

Ken My recommendation for the three Suites as well as the Birds is a fairly obscure one: my "home" chamber orchestra, the Australian CO, on Vanguard (now re-released as a 2CD set coupled with a Baltimore SO Pines & Festivals - ATM1227). The AA&D/Birds date from 1985, well before the ACO became inter...

Just to round this topic off, I thought I should let those of you who have read and contributed to the discussion what other information (such as it is) I have found, and the conclusions we at Musicweb have come to, regarding the competition entry. I did get confirmation from Pierce College Library ...

I live in the sixth largest city in Australia, yet there is no specialist classical music store, and those that do stock some classical CDs have little more than a few bargain CDs and a limited range of Naxos. In Sydney, 100 miles away, there are a few specialist stores, but the new releases take at...

Thanks to Corlyss, piston & PJME for your help. The mystery still remains - I have emailed the library at Pierce, hoping they might be able to reply more quickly than the Professor of Music. The obituary from motleyvision is encouraging, though again the text is the same as in Wikipedia (and every o...

Thanks Corlyss

Many thanks for your thought, but I'm ahead of you - I have emailed the Professor of Music at Pierce College, California, where Taylor was supposed to have worked for many years. No reply as yet. What is very interesting that your profile lists Utah as your location. What I have found regarding Tayl...

Has anyone heard of a composer by the name of Rowan Taylor?

I am one of the web editors for Musicweb International, and as some of you might know, we have been running a Christmas competition seeking an answer to "who is the most prolific composer of all time?" Of course, it is an unanswerable question, because of the various criteria that can be used, but i...
