and if I am right, the sound was from an ancient pair of Tandy PZM's and a tascam handheld recorder lol.

As a "non Organist", I am always very happy, when the person in command of a larger instrument, plays effortlessly, or near enough

There are two organs of note in Harrogate I think, though I cannot remember enough detail - a four-manual in a church in the town centre and a fine 3 manual just out of town in what my memory tells me might be a Pearson church with a fine stone vault and good acoustic?

the ones in Harrogate are the 4 man one at St. Peters, a late departed friend was organist there, I have a private recording done in the 80's, just after Ernest Hart installed his 32' speakers and a Bert Preted rebuilt it. And the other, I think is St.john's, Bilton,

York is NOT in the North East lol, its not far from Leeds, and just along the 1079  to Beverley, much less south than Ampleforth, ( I live just 12 miles from York  :) )

I understand that the inaugural recital, given by Thomas Trotter, will be on Thursday, September 14. Looking forward to it!

I will have to go, and take a friend who lives in Manchester took her to York and Beverley minster last year..... she enjoyed it :-)

well A very good friend of mine, has recorded Mr, Derrett a few times, and the cds, that were produced, received very good reviews from OR, a few years ago. And nothing more expensive was used than an old pair of "Tandy" PZM mics and a tascam DAT (at the time) recorder. So like has been said, one can use just a basic minimum of expense, all the way to a "£8500 Neuman "dummy head  plus associated cables recorder etc
