  1. Many thanks for identifying it Stephen, and thanks for the link, S_L.
  2. Yes, a pain in this circumstance.
  3. Could anyone possibly tell me what voluntary Harry Gabb is playing at the end of this recording, please? Many thanks indeed. Karg Elert? Rheinberger?? Martin.
  4. Many thanks, Malcolm. I have sent you message via this forum which I hope reaches you. Martin.
  5. Some of you may know of our fellow contributor's delightful recording of Fela Sowande's Pastourelle on a Wyvern organ then in Arundel Cathedral. It's a really beautiful piece and I was able to obtain a reprint service copy a few years ago. It's well worth getting hold of one. I also play K'a Mura which is the first of Two Preludes on Yoruba Sacred Melodies, published in 1945 by Novello, and I recommend this, too, if you can get a copy. But... I would very much like to obtain a copy of No 2 - Jesu Olugbala - and I am struggling with this. Banks have not been able to help this time. Can anyone possibly point me in the right direction for a Novello reprint service, or a second hand copy... or, if you're not using yours, could I possibly buy yours... or something? Many thanks, just in case! Martin.
  6. Yes, indeed... many thanks, Paul.
  7. Thanks for all these pointers, Paul. I'm struggling a bit to pursue your links though. I can find reprint services for some Novello-published Prichard pieces, but can't find Elphaba or Barry Jordan nor can I find a link to him on the Leeds Organists' site. Any chance you could possibly produce a weblink at all? Sorry if I'm doing something wrong here! Many thanks; Martin.
  8. Thanks for posting this Dave - very interesting and good to see that the cathedral is seeking to forge ahead with their organ scheme. What do I know? And I'm sorry that I have never heard the Bristol organ, but I know it to be much revered and in need of restoration. It looks to be a really excellent scheme that makes the best use of the stops available whilst fully respecting the original. I'm not sure I have fully grasped the significance of the Quint business. Obviously, I know what a Quint is and what its effect is, but wouldn't a 'proper' smaller scaled 32 flue be better if the space could be found? I may sound ignorant in saying this, but I can't remember an instrument where having a Quint as a substitute for a 32ft was really successful.
  9. But so sad that the time has come for Roger to part with it.
  10. Mine too! And the Prelude "New Commonwealth" from the 49th Parallel does work well on the organ. OUP published an arrangement by Christopher Morris. It was 2/6.
  11. Andrew Wyatt has been appointed ADoM at Truro Cathedral from August 2020. Currently ADoM at Chester Cathedral.
  12. I wrote to Banks yesterday - received prompt message to say that he had it on order... so it's on its way. Very good service.
  13. Does anyone know about the new organ here, replacing the Copeman Hart? Just received a forwarded tweet with a picture of a very attractive terraced console, but no mention of the builder.
  14. Ah, many thanks, Tony, and sorry to have doubted your initial response! I have been in touch now and am waiting to hear. BW Martin.
  15. Many thanks, all - and am I right in thinking it's Banks Musicroom I need, rather than Banks Music Publications?
