  1. Am sure there is a recording, made by Christopher Dearnley, playing the various organs in St Pauls ( Michael Woodwards St Pauls LP/CD's) https://www.prioryrecords.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_74&product_id=2095
  2. but that is what the BBC does best (being slightly political for a second) mislead, mis represent, give mis- information 🤣
  3. I have it on reasonable authority that the organ is one of those difficult instruments to record (like the 2 Liverpools, and St Pauls) for reasons that those who know more about it than me can say . To close a recording and the different Divisions are not heard in context, and to far, and the sound gets less direct and the room/acoustics spoil it. There are a number of recording about, most sound different, like the Bates /Liszt, Weir and Simon Preston > There are many others
  4. I agree, what is it for? I am at a slight loss for words, a great expense for a non essential item (thats the church for you) They should be ashamed really, when just up the road in Warrington at the Parr Hall, they are helpless, or am I missing something, and regardless how its paid for🤬
  5. I think she wasn't talking to organists, but to Joe public, who probably have no idea what an organ is (apart from that box of whistles that makes a noise), or how it works
  6. My PC also did that. I mentioned it in the comments section. The music played fine, but like you said, the speech was off
  7. I better keep the recordings I made there a few years ago, safe and sound, just incase
  8. A lot of people seem to "write off" certain large church/cathedral instruments if the are not in the style, or made by the likes of H&H, Willis, for example. I personally had not heard the Guilford organ until the other day (through Beauty In Sound), and its stunning, whether or not it was second hand, it fits the building like it was made for it
  9. Marco Lo Musico is a very good organist and pianist. His versions of collaborations with ex Genesis Steve Hacket are very good, as his interpretation of my musical hero, Rick Wakemans, Jane Seymour ( without drums and mini Moog) from the 6 Wives of Henry VIII album.
  10. Thanks Owen, but as I cannot play, a recording is what I would want
  11. this is what I have gathered. I know Thomas Heywood has done them all, but with the pandemic happening, am not sure how far he has got
  12. I am just collecting a few CD's at the moment, and am wondering if there is a transcription of the Beethoven 6? I know the Australian organist, Thomas Heywood is doing all 9 Symphonies eventually. Was just wondering if someone like Jonathan Scott had done it
  13. I must admit to having no LP's left in my small collection, just a lot, maybe 200+ DAT and MD's (I have yet to go through them) that I got left by a late friend, his older reel to reel recordings inc the master recordings made at Selby Abby, went to a friend in Liverpool, along with his 2 machines
  14. I agree 100%. The recorded organ music enthusiasts has had to for so long do with offerings from so many people, some know what they are doing, but with average quality recording equipment and others with big budget gear, but just produce so so sound. This is from a personal point of view, and not a dig at some well known companies with large catalogues of music to their name
