Carlo Curley played at my church, Christ Church URC Port Sunlight, in 1987. He was demonstrating the Allen organ for Wirral organists. It was winter and he said that our church was the coldest church he had ever played in. We asked him to play our 4 manual Willis for comparison purposes but the Allen people would not permit this (probably quite wise in 1987!). He was wearing a multicoloured revolving bow tie that he was still wearing the following evening on the Terry Wogan Show on TV. He autographed a copy of his CD 'The Finest Hour' (recorded at Blenheim Palace on the Fther Willis) that I still have - it has suddenly become that bit more precious to me.
