More music by Dr Francis Jackson, born a century ago this month, features in today’s programme in the form of his lively Diversion for the Mixtures dedicated to former York Sub-Organist Eric Parsons, who moved from Bairstow’s “blessed city” to become Organist of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Edinburgh. Works by Schumann and Liszt treat the musical notation of the Bach family surname as two sets of descending semi-tones according to German musical nomenclature: their B is “our” B flat, A and C are the same in both traditions and the German systems describe our B natural as “H”.
