  1. Dupre: Souvenir (Sept Pieces) Tallis: Audivi Vocem de Caelo Responses: Leighton Psalm 37: Gauntlett, Stanford, Watson Hark, a Herald Voice is Calling (NO descant!) Magdalen College Service: Leighton Byrd: O Lord, Turn Thy Wrath Dupre: Le Monde dans L'attente du Sauveur The prevailing weather should be wet; the minister would not, apart from the intercessions, use any words not prescribed by the BCP. He should especially not begin "Good afternoon, and welcome to this blah blah blah..."
  2. The Antiphonal Organ is really an orgue de choeur to accompany the monks. The main organ has of course to be able to accompany hearty congregational singing on a daily basis. Surely the size of the building is at least part of the reason for the (effective) use of extension? There are many more huge organs in smaller rooms than this... How about your average Oxbridge chapel or City of London church?
  3. At the NFT last night I saw Powell & Pressburger's wonderful 'A Matter of Life & Death' (1946). The music is by Allan Grey, and the 'court' scenes contain some improv on a large-sounding instrument (hefty diaps, tubas etc.) in a spacious acoustic. Does anyone happen to know which instrument this was? The usual film sites (imdb etc.) aren't very illuminating. Cheers.
