  1. Hi I've heard of one person who has a Scrabl practice organ, but not played one (yet). I have played around half a dozen other pipe home organs, ranging from a small 1 manual to a 3 manual theatre organ. Every Blessing Tony
  2. I can recommend her latest CD of Canadian Organ Music which she launched at the cathedral recently with a short recital - a very pleasant prelude to the Organists' Assoc. AGM! The CD is "Canadian Organ Music" by Rachel Mahon. It's on the Delphian label DCD34234 and is played on the Coventry Cathedral Harrison. Every Blessing Tony
  3. Hi I notice that Rachel Mahone (Coventry Cathedral's DoM elect) is on BBC Radio 3 at 1:00 today (28th March) Every Blessing Tony
  4. Hi I tried this once with recorder & organ pedals. It's far from easy! The piece didn't make my concert repertoire! Might try it again sometime. Every Blessing Tony
  5. Agreed David. And he plays Harmonium as well! His duos with his brother on piano are also worth hearing. Every Blessing Tony
  6. Hi NPOR confirms that, apart from the front pipes of the former Nave division, the organ was removed before 2013. The remaining pipe display sadly hides a speaker array for the electronic. (Don't get me started on that issue!) Every Blessing Tony
  7. Hi Paul I picked up the Thistlethwaite book from our local bookshop yesterday - looking forward to reading it. It cost more than I'd usually spend on a book - but I had a couple of Christmas/Birthday gifts that covered a lot of the cost. I've had the Brindley book for a while - an interesting read. I've not come across the Wilkinson book. COuld you let me know where you got it from, and the full title, publisher etc. (I use our local bookshop when I can) Many thanks Every Blessing Tony

    Interesting post Carrick. I've saved the post for future reference. Every Blessing Tony
  9. Hi Our local organists' association are running an event at Rugby Baptist Church (& there may be others elsewhere) Every Blessing Tony
  10. Hi AJJ Just click on the "Buy it Now" button on the eBay page. That's what I did & had no problems, CD arrived within a couplle of days. Every Blessing Tony
  11. Hi Rachel is due to play a recital for the Coventry & Warwickshire Organists' Association tomorrow, prior to our AGM at Coventry Cathedral. Just discovered this is open to the publicc - see the Cathedral website http://www.coventrycathedral.org.uk/wpsite/blog/2020/02/04/a-special-opportunity-for-young-and-old-alike-to-hear-the-cathedral-organ/ Every Blessing Tony
  12. Possibly Colin, it's quite a while since I read the article. It shows Compton moving with the times - but arguably they went too far in concentrating on electronic organs when they did. Every Blessing Tony
  13. My copy of the book arrived yesterday. With reference to Compton & the neo-Baroque revival, I've read - probably in an article in "The Organ" - that the last version of the Miniatura was conceived with a more Baroque specification. Every Blessing Tony
  14. Hi I can't recall an mp3, but there are a handful of videos of a Casson Positive being played on You Tube, for example see below. There are at least 2 more on his You Tube channel. Every Blessing Tony
