Many thanks for your kind comments, Jim and Bernadette. Jim, I'm by no means a pro, but I'm very happy to share what I know with anyone who wants it! I've written a few articles here on TLF which you might find useful.

right thats it steve you asked for it The Royal College of Music is a prestigious music school located in Kensington, London. Founded in 1882 as a successor to the National Training School for Music by the then-Prince of Wales (later Edward VII), the school opened in 1883 with George Grove as its director. It moved to its present location in the Albertopolis cultural quarter, next to Imperial College London and opposite the Royal Albert Hall in 1894. In the same year Hubert Parry became director, remaining until 1918. The current director is Dr. Colin Lawson. The college teaches all aspects of western classical music from undergraduate to doctorate level. There is a Junior Department, where 300 children aged 8 to 18 are educated on Saturdays. It also has an extensive museum of musical instruments which is open to the public. The college building was designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield.The Department of Portraits and Performance History has a collections of 340 original portraits and 10,000 prints and photographs; a collection of 600,000 concert programmes from 1720 to the present day; and extensive holdings relating to opera, instrument, title-page and concert-hall design
