The quickest way to find recitals is to use the main links (Areas/Venues/Organists/Dates) near the top of each page. If the person or place you're seeking isn't shown in the appropriate index, they have no concerts listed.
The search box (located in the centre of the main links) is useful for providing results not available elsewhere on the site, e.g. entering "westminster" will show recitals at Westminster Abbey; Westminster Cathedral; Westminster Central Hall;
St Matthew's, Westminster; etc. It can also find recitals by an organist or at a venue or in a locality or county. Simply enter the name in the search box and, then, click on the magnifying glass symbol or press your keyboard's Return/Enter key.
General Rules for Searching
(1) UPPER or lower case letters may be used, or AnY cOmBiNaTiOn thereof. (2) Full stops are ignored but commas and apostrophes must be included. (3) Shorter search terms are more likely to get results. (4) It is not possible to search for county groups (e.g. East Anglia). These are all available via links near the bottom of each page.
Searching for Venues
Example: Search for "st paul's, birmingham" (strict punctuation) or "saint pauls birmingham" (without punctuation but with the full spelling of saint). Alternatively, enter "st paul" and pick-out the one you want from the list of results. If just "paul" is entered, results will include organists named Paul and venues called St Paul's.
It is also possible to search using venue codes, if known, e.g. "ahbtt" is All Hallows by The Tower and "westcath" is Westminster Cathedral.
Searching for Organists
The easiest way is to use a six-letter code consisting of the first three letters of the forename and the first three of the surname, e.g. "jonhop" is Jonathan Hope.
A search for "dan cook" will show recitals by Daniel Cook but "timothy wakerell" will not get a result – because he's listed here as Tim. It's worth noting that each organist's name is consistent across the site, e.g. Ben Bloor never appears as Benjamin and Benjamin Saunders never appears as Ben. Therefore, it's best to use abbreviated forenames, where possible. However, if they're spelled differently to full names (e.g. Tom/Thomas, Mike/Michael, Bill/William) separate searches may be necessary. If you're unsure of a spelling (e.g. Martin/Martyn, Nicholas/Nicolas, Ian/Iain), enter the first letters (those that are common to both spellings, i.e. "mart" or "nic" or "ia", in these examples) followed by a space and, then, the surname (or part of it), e.g. "ste ley" will show results for Stephen Disley.
Finally...
Recital titles are included in search results (single-word searches work best, e.g. "inaugural" or "messiaen") but many such titles are already listed on the Specific Themes page.
