1. That the Table of Fees attached to the regulations for University Composition Fees (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 154) be amended for 2017–18 as set out in the Schedule to the Council’s Notice dated 18 April 2016 (p. 467).

3. That, with effect from 1 October 2016, the special regulations for the University Organist (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 665) be amended so as to read:1

1. Appointments and reappointments to the University office of University Organist shall be made by the Council.

2. The University Organist shall be responsible for the music at such University ceremonies and University services as the Vice-Chancellor may direct.


  • 1The Council is proposing these changes, to come into effect following the retirement of the current officeholder, Mr Stephen Cleobury CBE, K, to enable a person to be appointed as University Organist until the retiring age (removing the limitation to an appointment not exceeding five years) and to reflect current practice, whereby the person appointed may be asked to make the arrangements for music at University events such as the Honorary Degree Congregation and the installation of a new Chancellor.
