organrecitals.com deals with more than 4,000 concerts-per-year. In the past, listings have been compiled from concerts submitted by e-mail, plus concerts found on the websites of organists, churches, etc. Over the years, the balance has changed, meaning that fewer concerts are now submitted and more are sourced from websites.
Checking the thousands of websites belonging to organists, churches, cathedrals, concert halls, etc. is time-consuming and, sometimes, pointless – because quite a number are moribund or wildly out-of-date or inaccurate for other reasons. Likewise, e-mailing organists and concert organisers can be hit-and-miss, in terms of positive outcomes.
Therefore, from 2019, only submitted concerts will be listed. No websites will be checked. No concert organisers or organists will be chased-up. This policy may well result in the loss of a significant number of concerts – but even a 50% fall-off will leave considerably more concerts listed than on any other similar website. It will be interesting to see at what level the site settles. A review of the outcome will take place near the end of 2019.
The bottom line: For concerts to appear on organrecitals.com, they must be submitted. It's a quick and easy process, and anyone, not just concert organisers, can do it. For more information, see organrecitals.com/info
