What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

USA: San Francisco, California. Rector wants exchange in Europe.
'We have a flat with a panoramic view in San Francisco, California. Well appointed living room, dining room, large bedroom, study could serve as extra bedroom. Dishwasher, washer and dryer, modern kitchen, fridge, gas stove. Carpeting, antiques, paintings, and photography add warmth and charm. Two cars and garage are also available. Across the street is beautiful, green Dolores Park, with walks, play ground, tennis court and soccer field. Streetcar to downtown San Francisco in fifteen minutes. Within walking distance of the flat are many fine restaurants.
I am Rector of Trinity Church and have a four-week vacation. Ann and I would like a four-week exchange between June 15 and August 5, with a rector or vicar’s home preferably in a city on the continent. The countryside in Italy or France would be fine, too. We would also be interested in an exchange in or near London. We made exchanges in the recent past with St James’s, Piccadilly, and Grovesnor Chapel, Mayfair. I would like to do services during the exchange. If the exchange partner would like to preach and/or celebrate at Trinity, that can be arranged but is not necessary. I have an associate and a number of clergy volunteers to take my place while I am on vacation. References upon request'. Please email more information:

The 100th anniversary of the death of Sir John Stainer, March 2001: Sir John is best known as a composer of religious music (his work 'Crucifixion' remains popular), as professor of music at Oxford University and as organist of St Paul's Cathedral. London. His most popular works were published by Novello in London and included manuals on organs, composing, choral singing and harmony. These works, first published between 1871 and and 1878 had sold over 300,000 copies within and without the United Kingdom by Sir John's death in March 1901; they remained in print until the mid-20th century. Novello also published Stainer's more scholarly works, most notably his work on Early English music in the Bodleian Library, Oxford ('Early Bodleian Music', 1901). There is a special website providing a biography of Stainer, assessing his legacy and listing commemorative events taking place in Oxford, UK. --
