Relayed from ALL SAINTS ', MARGARET STREET
THE younger of two brothers who are both among the foremost
British organists-grandnephews of that great church musician, Sir John Goss—Reginald Goss Custard has given recitals in most parts of the world, and in America his playing is as popular as in his own country. Though he has held church appointments for many years, it is chiefly by his concert playing that he has earned his world-wide reputation, and there are few better-known names in the organ world. When ho became organist of St. Margaret's, Westminster-a post he afterwards left to go to St. Michael's, Chester Square-his immediate predecessor was Edwin Lernare , whose renown as a recital player set a very high standard for his successor to live up to. But Goss Custard 's brilliance was more than equal to the task. His elder brother, Henry, was responsible for the lay-out of the organ in the new Cathedral at Liverpool, and was appointed organist of it in 1917.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
