  1. Unusual audience member

    This seems to be the case on occasions in France too - a recent solo organ recital in Bourges Cathedral attracted a substantial audience. A
  2. There is a facebook page on Father Willis instruments which is reliable and free from the daftness found in some of the organ areas in said media. https://www.facebook.com/groups/639145742878503/ A
  3. Servite Priory Fulham

    Interesting - thanks! A
  4. Servite Priory Fulham

    Thanks both above - that is certainly encouraging! A
  5. Holiday playing

    Having had a lovely little one manual and pedal 1860s Vowles as my main church instrument for the last 20 plus years I can certainly say that I never tire of what one can actually get it to do both liturgically and in the repertoire it can cope with. With a bit of research there is much around from all points of the repertoire that will work effectively - enough to make me not over worried about that which will not! A
  6. This instrument http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N08874 caused quite a stir when it was installed and indeed somewhere I still have an LP of Alan Harverson playing various 'baroqueries' on it soon after. Does anyone know if it is still looked after, used in recitals etc. as one doesn't seem to hear much about it these days. A

  14. One of the mid Victorian instruments I play on regularly has its only manual 16' flue on the Swell and I often wish that it were on the Great. For me at least in repertoire it would work better there and I would also find it more of use there in service playing. There is no 16' reed on the Swell in question but that is part of the nature of the beast and something I can happily live with. I stand to be corrected here but I seem to remember reading somewhere that Father Willis made his Swell 8' Cornopeans or Trumpets of larger scale in the bass when no 16' reed was present to fill out that part of the compass.
