  1. Get Kirsty and Phil in quick, it needs a serious makeover for 2021
  2. My late friend, David J Rogers, was a frequent visitor to the Town Hall and other Leeds venues, (and no mean organist himself) He was always sat in the middle of the first row, ready to stick his trusty Tandy PZM microphones on the stage lip. I know he always had permission from 99% of the performers, but I always wonder if he had it 100% of the time
  3. Watching? As on You Tube... is there a link if it was
  4. It just so happened I was in the middle of listening to one of her CD's, when I heard (via FB) RIP Catherine Ennis
  5. I will have a look through all the DAT tapes I inherited from a David Rogers, as I know he got hold of all the original reel to reel tapes of those recordings (somehow), and if he transferred them to DAT or Minidisc, I will have them, if not, A friend in Liverpool has all the reel to reel recordings, OR he may have returned them to the original owner. But it will be after Christmas
  6. another thought, and it MAY have some bearing, although negligible.... I was looking through my CD collection (which is now on a PC) and a great number of discs by Priory, in the GEO series, feature many organists playing music that to many I think, would not be played at a recital... even if it was a collection of organistšŸ¤”I know I have seen a few really nice instruments, but on reading the track listing, I put it straight back on the shelf. Likewise, when going to recitals/concerts, if the programme is NOT available before entering the place, I avoid going. I once went to support a loc
  7. That is good news. It brings back good memories of when I went to most of the Bank Holiday recitals in Tim Hones time there (as was self employed and they were the only ones I could attend). A friend of ours, a Colin Wood of Sunderland allowed me to make one of my first recordings there, on an old reel to reel in 1986
  8. I lived a couple of miles from Coxwold, a few years ago, passed the church every day nearly, but never went in.... as Easingwold was our church at the time
  9. As a "non player", I have been to 100's of recitals all over from 1977 until 2019, and for me there is nothing worse than travelling many miles, paying an entrance fee and finally getting a programme with music by some composers I have never heard of. Transcriptions... I can take them or leave them, realising that at certain Town Hall venues, they are expected, but I get the Mahler thing (I recorded one in York Minster with permission of the recitalist and RS). I organised my own recital a few months ago, with an eminent player, good church, quality programme etc, and more advertising
  10. Very sad news. I only heard her the once, at York Minster in July of 2011
  11. A friend of mine was going to make a professional recording at Coventry about a year ago or 2 (with Wayne Marshall), they wanted just over Ā£3000 for the recording session. So as it was a tad rich for his blood, they had the good fortune to go to a large church in Portugal with a new ish large organ, and record for free (was an RC church)
  12. A few years ago the Durham University along with James Lancelot and the amazing Cathedral Organ, made and produced a good DVD of the Elgar Sonata, complete with interviews of scholars of the subject (I think)
  13. James Lancelot had H & H build one for his large sitting room when he was at Durham
  14. found this, it was set up a few weeks ago, and his U Tube channel has been going for a year or so https://pipesandposts.com/
