    C.S. Lang - Organ Music

    I will look this one up - it appears to be available as an OUP reprint, along with a Toccata and some sets of Chorale Preludes. Having dug out the 'Christ's Hospital Papers' by Nicholas Plumley last night, from a large collection of books I came into possession to from the estate of late organ builder, Brian Bunting - it would seem that a lot of Lang's organ music was published after his tenure at CHH. On another note (and perhaps a seed for a new thread) - have there ever been any recordings made of the chapel organ at Horsham? Many of the registrations in the organ pieces allude to that instrument, particularly in the Sonata. Despite living not too far from Horsham, I've never heard the organ in the flesh. I'm pretty sure our hosts did some work on it some time ago in the 1980s. Tim

    C.S. Lang - Organ Music

    Most of us are probably familiar with his famous Tuba Tune and the Epiphany carol 'Eastern Sages, Monarchs Three', which have enjoyed enduring popularity. Amongst my organ music collection, I have the following: Prelude, Pastorale and Fugue Sonata in D minor (very lengthy - 50 pages!) Prelude and Fugue in G minor Introduction and Passacaglia in A minor Fugue Trilogy on E.G.B. Procession (in one of the Oxford Albums) As far as I can tell, only one of the above has ever been recorded (the Fugue Trilogy, at St Mary Redcliffe by a previous member of this board). It is a shame, as there is certainly more than enough music to fill a couple of discs. Have any other board members experience of playing any of the above, or others of Lang's works? They seem nicely written, and on the whole technically approachable. Kind regards Tim

    Priory Records DVDs

    I'd definitely like to see Southwark included.

    Ecce Sacerdos Magnus

    I really like the Elgar - the choirs I've introduced it to have also rather enjoyed it too!

    Luxuriant Adagio

    Bumping up an old thread, this could match the description:

    Tuba Magna!

    For me, the Fanfare by Alec Wyton is one of the most striking pieces in this genre (written for the State Trumpet stop at St John the Divine - and heard here on that very instrument).

    List of beautiful English Organs

    Here is one not far from me in East Sussex - All Saints, Danehill. Lovely Bodley case on the rood screen. http://npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=D01928

    Charles Steggall

    I've got a Fugue in D minor somewhere at home by him. I printed it out from an organ collection of some type from IMSLP quite some time ago, but I forget which. It must have looked interesting enough on paper for me to print out, but I've certainly never played it. I'm sure I can dig it out for you should you be interested (I think there is another piece with it also).

    Bullock - Improvisation on a Tune by Orlando Gibbons

    Many thanks for investigating this, Paul. I will contact them regarding this. It would seem that the Introduction and Fugue was published by OUP: http://www.worldcat.org/title/introduction-and-fugue-in-e-minor-for-organ/oclc/9513026&referer=brief_results Tim

    Prepared For

    Here is an example!
  14. This may have been brought up before, but can anyone assist me in hunting down where I could buy a copy of this piece? I'm not sure, but I think it was in an album of some sort, although I don't know which. It seems pretty elusive - and seems to only have been recorded once - by Paul Morgan at Exeter. It would be a pleasant addition to the repertoire! Best regards Tim

    Rhapsody on an Old English Tune - Rootham

    The YouTube link is indeed a different piece - I have the scores to both but have played neither! There is also Epinikion: Song of Triumph, recorded at Ripon by Graham Barber - alongside the piece above also.
