Congratulations to Judith Weir on being appointed Master of the Queen’s Music. The first female holder of the post and the first, I think I’m correct in saying, to have been appointed while her predecessor is still alive - two more fundamental changes to a post which itself changed beyond all recognition over the previous decades.
It would be lovely to say that Judith Weir is the ideal choice for this post. But is she? And, frankly, what does the post entail that would allow anyone to define what “the ideal choice” would be?
