    Anne Page is to give a recital to mark the rededication, following restoration by Richard Bower, of the GM Holdich organ at St. margaret's Church, Upton (nr. Acle), Norfolk. The oncert, according to the link below, is to be on Saturday 30th September starting at 7:30pm. http://www.greatyarmouthmercury.co.uk/news/joy-as-150-year-old-holdich-organ-is-returned-to-norfolk-church-following-82-000-restoration-project-1-5203269 http://uptonholdichorgan.org.uk/ Dave
  2. Youtube

    This instrument is actually 3 organs (main organ and two choir organs) all playable from two consoles. The case on the gallery dates from the late 1730s and an organ by Johann Brandenstein (according to Wikipedia although the link in this text dates the case to 1765). A bit more information can be found at https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.die-orgelseite.de%2Fdisp%2FD_Waldsassen_Stiftsbasilika.htm translated into English to an extent.

  3. Buckfast Abbey

    Yes he would be a good bet: I heard his recital at Worcester Cathedral a couple of years back, the first time I had ever heard him play live, and it was absolutely fabulous. Richard Lea and Carol Williams I have never heard live although I have heard CW on YouTube and think she plays very well. Dave
  4. James Lancelot

    Hi all, Just been nosing around the website of Durham Cathedral and came across this sermon, preached on his final Sunday as DoM, by Canon James Lancelot. Thought I would share it here. https://www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/worshipandmusic/sermon-archive/visions-and-dreams Although I had thought he was not a full canon of the Cathedral a search of the sermon archives does also bring up two other sermons from James. HTIOI, Dave
  5. Music query

    Evening all, I am wondering if any of our Facebook-using members may be able to help with this one. Our members from Germany may already be aware that the death was announced this morning of Cardinal Joachim Meisner (1933-2017, Archbishop of Cologne 1989-2014). I have just come across this clip on Facebook..... https://www.facebook.com/domradio.de/videos/10155392236108311/ ..... featuring extracts from his sermons. It also shows the choir of Cologne Cathedral singing for His Eminence on the occasion of his 83rd Birthday and that starts 37 seconds in to the clip. Does anyone recognise the music please? I wouldn't mind trying to hear the whole piece. In case the video link doesn't work, the page from which it is taken can be found at https://www.facebook.com/domradio.de/ Cheers, Dave
  6. Morning all, For anyone not already aware BBC Radio 3's broadcast of Choral Evensong on Wednesday coming (5th July) will be live from Durham Cathedral. It will, of course, also be James Lancelot's last CE broadcast from Durham Cathedral before he retires after 32 years on 16th July. I did express hope, on the "Appointments" thread, that Canon Lancelot might be made Organist Emeritus for his long service to the cathedral and I still hope that this will be the case. Dave
  7. Bats in the Bourdon

    No idea but anymore jokes like that will make us all go batty...... Dave
  8. Buckfast Abbey

    Specifications for both instruments can be found at : https://www.buckfast.org.uk/ruffattiorgan I will be interested to see who does the opening concert: quite a trip from Bristol but I may attend. Dave

  11. Youtube

    Just found this clip featuring the late and great John Scott at Merton College, Oxford. Dave
  12. What piece is this?

    I did but, if it is, I wonder what piece / hymn tune the improvisation is of. Really nice job. Dave
  13. What piece is this?

    Hi. Wondering if anyone can identify the piece of music which is played for the opening 2 minutes of this clip? Nice use of the cimbelstern bells (although the organ case, AFAIK, has no rotating start on it). Cheers, Dave
  14. Appointments 2

    Interesting. If you look at the music list for HM Chapel Royal, St. James' Palace it gives Carl Jackson as Director of Music without making it clear if he is merely *Acting* DoM. http://www.chapelroyal.org/docs/CR%20Music%20List%20May%202017.pdf Dave
