  1. Currently awaiting response from them - will post when/if information forthcoming. A
  2. Thanks for all this - have just ordered! A
  3. 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
  4. Dublin has one too. 'Have seen the stoplist online recently but maddeningly can not now locate. Maybe someone on here....? 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. 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
  7. There is/was a Cowing organ at Barnet Baptist Church.... http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N14527 ...and interestingly Spurden Rutt worked at both the Methodist and Congregational Churches there. Barnet is my home town but I do not know the up to date state of organs in these churches currently. The Methodist church was sold for redevelopment many years ago however. A
  8. Thanks for all this, it is good to hear that the former Hucknall organ has found another good home. We lived in Lincoln In the mid '80s and I actually taught round the corner from this church for a while. Round about the same time I was also involved with the genesis of the Nigel Church organ at All Saints Friern Barnet and we visited Hucknall as part of our fact finding before hand. As far as I remember there was no pipe organ at St Peter & Paul when we were there. A
  9. Richard Lea goes to Buckfast Abbey in the autumn as Organist after 30 plus years association with Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral. A
  10. There is an opening recital on 30th September of a rebuilt/reconditined organ by Nigel Church in the RC church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Lincoln. Does anyone on here know where this has come from or any other information please? Thanks A
  11. This on first impressions would seem pointless........ A
  12. Anna Lapwood goes to Pembroke College Cambridge as DOM from October. A
  13. Wimborne Minster has one of these to disable the Chamades with the key secure at all times in the pocket of the current 'Titulaire'. I have also heard of a similar arrangement at a well known public school where the decibel levels of teenage practice can be kept in check by means of a switch and lock. A
  14. There is a photo. circulating with 'Vestry to Great' and 'Vestry to Pedal' couplers shown on a console. I have a feeling this might have been previously mentioned on here but if anyone can re throw a light on where and why it would be interesting to hear. A
  15. Paul Dewhurst from St Giles, Pontefract to Leeds Minster. A
  16. This is interesting - aside from the FRCO it would appear that a PGCE is L7 along with a Master's degree from this point of view. A
  17. I enjoyed this but was struck by the fact that instruments can sound refreshingly different in different hands. Here, having been used to hearing Liverpool largely played by one player in particular for quite a few years it is good to hear different 'takes' on the resources available. I remember the same with the Gloucester Cathedral organ - another instrument with a very distinct personality and another where the possibilities are seemingly limitless. A
  18. More here.... http://www.bathabbey.org/abbey-community-news A
  19. You could maybe try pinging an email to Michael Johnston at Michael's Music - he may not publish the piece but is a mine of information. Prof. Thomas Murray at Yale might also be able to assist as I have a feeling he has recorded pieces by Swinnen on the Longwood Gardens organ. A
  20. This might interest readers on here - http://www.culturevannin.im/special/church_organ/ A
  21. 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

    New Music

    I have a few of the OUP books and play a few of the pieces but often much prefer to head for the smaller independent publishers where there are some rather good examples of new(ish) music at competetive prices. I also find that the music is perhaps more characterful and dare say it maybe also less 'mass market'. It is also handy where one can see the music before purchase (as with OUP) and where there is an option of downloading a pdf to print at home - sometimes I do this and sometimes not. Here are some: http://www.selahpub.com Check out Craig Philips and Alfred Fedak - quite 'tran
  23. Ian Roberts goes to Newcastle Cathedral as DOM from St. John's Ranmoor, Sheffield. A
  24. Anyone interested in Langlais should take advantage of this! https://www.agohq.org/jean-langlais-remembered/ A
  25. Sheffield Cathedral DOM post in Church Times today. A
