  1. Oliver Hancock goes from Assistant at Portsmouth Cathedral to St Mary's Warwick as DOM. A
  2. Wine of Peace - Charles Camilleri A
  3. It looks like it it is the same as is currently the case - Mixture IV with tierce, Fourniture IV with just quints. A

  5. 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

  7. Similar here: http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N10088 A
  8. 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. A
  9. I recently took posession of the recent Positif Press books on the organs at New College Oxford and those at St George's Chapel Windsor without a problem via an email to John Brennan. jb@positifpress.co.uk Both books are excellent! A

    Selwyn popped up in a continuing discussion above. A

    Thanks for both of these - good to hear positive things about the Flentrop. A

    New organ for Cambridge

    The Flentrop at Sidney Sussex is now apparently in and dedicated. It would be interesting to hear from anyone who has heard/played it how it comes across. A
  14. As a matter of interest does anyone use these remote divisions in any repertoire context aside from the liturgical? A
  15. Yes, and if you take it even further you get the sort of one manual job than can be found in many villages down this way. In chancel with choir if there is one - 8' OD and possibly 4' unenclosed with 8' and 4' flutes, 8' string or Dulciana with possible Celeste, 2', maybe Mixture and an Oboe all enclosed. Solitary 16' on the Pedal with coupler. Even the sometimes lowest octave missing from the 8's is not always a problem as the separate drawing stopped 8' bass can be creatively used with the pedal coupler. It always amazes me what these little gems can actually do - great for the more 'village' end of the choir repertoire and able to cope with a surprising ammount of 'proper' organ repertoire. They can also keep a moderate sized congregation in time. A
  16. An enquiry via here may help. http://www.guybovet.org/liens_en.html A
  17. I have an up to date stoplist of the St. Patrick's Cathedral Dublin organ and the synoptic spec.of the Nave Organ is OD 8', SD8', Pr4', 2', III-IV. Anyone interested in the full details please PM. A
  18. The pieces arrived today and if first impressions are anything to go by this anthology will prove to be a real treasure trove. Think early Langlais, not too astringent, plainsong based and generally two stave with optional pedal. Nice! A
  19. Currently awaiting response from them - will post when/if information forthcoming. A
  20. Thanks for all this - have just ordered! A
  21. Does anyone on here have the volume/s of Nibelles 50 pieces for liturgical use? I have heard extracts played and some of the pieces sound quite effective but would not really want to get hold of the whole lot unless it was worth it. His Carillon Is quite well known and I believe there is a quite effective Toccata too. A
  22. Dublin has one too. 'Have seen the stoplist online recently but maddeningly can not now locate. Maybe someone on here....? A
  23. 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
  24. St Patrick's Cathedral Dublin has also a nave division added fairly recently as part of work done on the organ by Trevor Crowe. A
