  1. Wine of Peace - Charles Camilleri A
  2. It looks like it it is the same as is currently the case - Mixture IV with tierce, Fourniture IV with just quints. A

  4. The proposed Canterbury spec. Is out there in the big wide world via the latest edition of The Organ Club Journal if anyone is interested. A
  5. Here it is.... Published possibly as you say by Novello (according to Dr Wills' website) though not sure if still available. Dr Wills once helped me with some music so maybe would do so again. Incidentally, he is 90 on 19th September. A
  6. Richard Lea goes to Buckfast Abbey in the autumn as Organist after 30 plus years association with Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. A
  7. Anna Lapwood goes to Pembroke College Cambridge as DOM from October. A
  8. Paul Dewhurst from St Giles, Pontefract to Leeds Minster. A
  9. More here.... http://www.bathabbey.org/abbey-community-news A
  10. A search prompted by mention elsewhere on here of the Collins work at Trinity College Oxford yielded this: http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=V00297 A
  11. Ian Roberts goes to Newcastle Cathedral as DOM from St. John's Ranmoor, Sheffield. A
  12. Sheffield Cathedral DOM post in Church Times today. A
  13. As far as I can work out the new west organ is fronted by a piperack - the choir organ in the chancel seems to be contained behind panels near the pit where the rest is situated. I played the instrument some years ago and seem to remember some nice sounds in a good acoustic. It would be interesting to know more about the recent work. A
  14. Here it is: http://corkcathedral.webs.com/specification A
  15. Have a look at the organ music by Huw Morgan on his Firehead Editions website. His 'Dialogues' is refreshingly contemporary and a growing set of hymn based pieces likewise. A
  16. I seem to remember Paul Hale was/is advising on this. A
  17. According to their website Michael Stoodart from Newcastle Cathedral succeeds Timothy Noon at Auckland Cathedral, New Zealand. A
  18. For those interested in such things this is a good demonstration of tonal and other aspects of Schoenstein organs in the USA.
  19. Having heard two of these three since work has been done on them in recent years it would seem to me that neither has changed radically and indeed both still sound very much like Downes instruments. St. Albans sounds far less 'lean' from minimal revoicing and has gained stops that possibly would have been there originally had there not been budget constraints or had RD not had a seeming problem with 2' principal stops. The RFH is still as it was though to my ears at least sounding much better. In both these cases the consultants involved in more recent work have kept the basics of voicing and
  20. Matthew Martin will be moving to Keble College, Oxford to be Its DoM. A
  21. "I must say I was going to post a new thread on the heavily restored organ at St Andrews Parish Church, Enfield, Middlesex, the work being undertaken by David Wells of Liverpool. I have the revised stop list to hand, having visited the new console yesterday. But given the ridiculous comments regarding stop lists, I'm inclined not to do it." That's a shame! A
  22. In my experience the best instruments produce the best music. That is how I would decide whether the organ is a good one rather than by stoplist analysis before it has even been built. A
  23. The Cuckoo movement from Carnival of the Animals works quite well. I used the piano version from IMSLP in a lollipops recital once. A
