N&DOA: A Centenary History 1921 - 2021

N&DOA: A Centenary History

Northampton & District Organists’ Association was founded in September 1921

To coincide with the event, NDOA has produced a centenary booklet prepared by our Past President, Richard Tapp

Northampton & District Organists’ Association - A Centenary History

The booklet draws on the Association’s original documents and records, and on the research carried out in preparing A Centenary History. This is a unique opportunity to read about the founders of the Association, NDOA’s activities over the century, its response to innovations from the gramophone to Zoom - as well as the challenges and tribulations involved over the years!

The story of NDOA’s history over the last 100 years is fascinating, and something which will interest members, friends and anyone with an eye for the musical and social history of the town and district.

NDOA is fortunate to have a virtually complete set of papers, including minutes, newsletters, programmes and press cuttings, and this short history draws on those sources and on personal recollections to illustrate the development of the association from its foundation in 1921 to the present day.

The history is in the form of a special edition of the Association’s Newsletter and is for general sale.
