July 5.As a member of the Glasgow Phoenix Choir for over 30 years I was interested to read Osborne Carrie's letter (June 29) regarding the omission of Peter Mooney's name in Tom McArthur's article (June 22).

Far from belittling Peter Mooney's contribution, Tom McArthur was mainly concerned with the exciting times in which the choir is engaged: a highly successful 10-day tour of Remscheid, Enger, and Paderborn in West Germany at Easter; recent concerts in the Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline, and Dornoch Cathedral; and the recent prestigious concert in Glasgow Cathedral at which the Phoenix Choir participated in the world premier of John Surman's Jazz Festival performance of ''Ovation''.
I am sure Tom McArthur intended no offence by omitting Peter Mooney's name which is perpetuated by the Peter Mooney Scholarship for Voice Training, instituted in the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, Glasgow, soon after his death in 1983, and funded by the choir.
