    Henry Ley

    I'd always wondered this too, but have heard it rhyme with 'see' more often.

    Henri Mulet

    Sorry to bump up an old thread - I was wondering if any members would still have these pieces they would be willing to share with me? My membership pre-dated the offer and I gather that the original poster is no longer a member of this forum. Many thanks in advance. Timothy

    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

    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

    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
  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

    Here is an example!

    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.

    Tracking down an organist

    I've recently bought a few of these scores from the 'Copperwheat collection', as it were. Thankfully I've managed to remove much of the tape from them! I recently noticed some scores I bought secondhand quite sometime ago in southern France bore the name 'Elie Carail' at the top - a quick google search round that he was a priest and organist in that region at the time. There are quite a few others in my collection but none famous! I recently pointed out to a colleague that his copy of a work by Leonce de Saint Martin was autographed by the composer - something he had failed to notice!

    Saving the Walcker in Birmingham's Central Methodist Hall

    I've played this one a few times over the last couple of years - a fine instrument. There's also this one: http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=D08066 Tim

    Caleb Simper

    In my last month as organist to a hospital chapel near Tunbridge Wells, I did a bit of clearing up in the organ loft and found a volume by Simper amongst a pile of music underneath one of the tiered choir stalls up there. It had probably sat down there for about 40 years (judging by dates written on the music). I left it there but next time I am back there I will have a look in it to see if this piece in contained therein. The British library might be worth a try in the meantime. Tim

    Christopher Tambling

    Martin, I believe that most of these pieces were republished in 'An Organ Miscellany'. I will need to check but I'm pretty sure I have the Tambling book too. Will check for you. Tim
