  1. Hi Our local organists' association are running an event at Rugby Baptist Church (& there may be others elsewhere) Every Blessing Tony
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. At least I managed to order from eBay before you ran out! I sympathise, having recorded for sale at various Christian Conferences. It can be frustrating when demand exceeds your expectations - and I did my own duplication (originally cassette, and then CD-R - still have the duplicating machine for the latter). Distribution of such things is always the difficult bit. Every Blessing Tony
  8. I've tried on e-Bay every morning this week and failed to find the e-book listed. Very frustrating! Every Blessing Tony
  9. Hi I've also been using a Zoom H1 for a few years. As Colin says, very good value for money. I also use a Sony HDR-MV1 which is basically a digital audio recorder with a (very) basic HD video camera included. Audio quality is OK. Very convenient for ad hoc location recording. Every Blessing Tony
  10. Hi Glad to hear that the book is now available - but a search on e-bay UK failed to find it! Is it possible to buy direct from you (I have reservations about e-Bay) and what's the price? Every Blessing Tony
  11. Look forward to publication & reading your work.
  12. Hi Talking of extension practice organs, the Grant, Deagans & Bradbeer instrument in the song room at Southwell Cathedral (formerly a house organ) is interesting. There is no adjacent octave extensions on either manual. See NPOR E01317 Every Blessing Tony
  13. Hi I bought the Stanley facsimiles many years ago, and have no great problem playing from them. No great favourites amongst them. I've not come across the T to W edition of them, but I do have a couple of other volumes from that series that get an occasional outing. I've recently purchased some of Fitzjohn Music's editions of early English organ music. I worked through a volume of John Marsh voluntaries before Christmas, and will be looking at various other composer's works this year. Very pleased to have re-discovered this publisher. Every Blessing Tony
  14. Hi This post has reminded me of a couple of broadcasts on BBC radio 3, in the days when there were regular organ broadcasts. I recorded a couple of programmes off air - first on 27th Feb 1984, a broadcast from Leeds Town Hall with Simon Lindley & Keith Swallow - music for piano & organ by Flor Peters. Included his Suite Modale Op 43, Aria Op51 & Concerto for organ & piano Op 74. The 2nd recording dates from 29/1/99 and was part of a short series "Organ & Friends" with David Hill & Stephen Coombes. I didn't note the programme on the cassette insert for this one. I also have a CD which I bought several years ago of organ & piano repertoire. My CD's are upstairs, and currently inaccessible as I have breathing problems (2nd chest infection of the season) and I can't remember any details. On a slightly broader front, there is a body of repertoire for Harmonium & Piano, including works by Cesar Frank, Kerg-Elart & Leferrbe-Wely IIRC. The Scott brothers and others have recorded some of this - but once again, my CD's are currently inaccessible. For those so inclined, there's also a body of works from the Evangelical church tradition - mainly hymn arrangements for piano & organ, and the 2 instruments are often used together to accompany hymns & choral works. Every Blessing Tony
  15. I thoroughly agree. I would also add that the church isn't in the museum business. Every Blessing Tony
