  1. I am certainly interested in getting the Edwards Contemplation piece - can the IAO journal be ordered from anywhere online? Paul - if you can point me in the direction of where I can purchase the Fantasy-Prelude and the Walter Vale pieces from that would be great. Kind regards Tim
  2. I'm not certain that any of the pipework dates from the original organ. I regularly practiced on this instrument (in it's previous form) when I was a teenager. I seem to remember that the original organ was formed around an instrument by Gray and Davison, later additions by Goll of Lucerne and then rebuilt with a new console in 1949 by Hill, Norman and Beard. The organ had been moved three times to various places in the cathedral (I may be able to upload from photos taken of the organ in its various places). When I knew it, the spec was (as far as I recall): Great: Bdn 16, Open I 8, Open II 8, Prin 4, 12th 2 2/3, 15th 2 Swell: Open 8, Lieb 8, Echo Viol 8, Celeste 8, Octave Geigen 4, Fifteenth 2, Mixt III, Contra Oboe 16, Trumpet 8 Choir: Lieb 8, Dulc 8, Gemshorn 4, Piccolo 2, Orchestral Clarinet 8, Tromba 8 (enclosed) Ped: Open Bass 16, Bass Viole 16, Bourdon 16, Principal 8, Bass Flute 8, Trombone 16 There may have also been a mutation on the Choir and Mixture on the Great. I haven't played the organ in it's latest form, however!
  3. There is a very fine Conacher at St.Mary's in Frittenden, Kent, moved a few years ago from the south chancel to the north aisle. Details here.
  4. I'd always wondered this too, but have heard it rhyme with 'see' more often.

    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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I'd definitely like to see Southwark included.
  9. I really like the Elgar - the choirs I've introduced it to have also rather enjoyed it too!
  10. Bumping up an old thread, this could match the description:
  11. 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).
  12. 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
  13. Very similar to this instrument: http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=D06483
  14. Found it here - first volume. http://imslp.org/wiki/The_Organist's_Quarterly_Journal_(Various)
  15. 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).
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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!
  20. http://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N17316 This one for example!
  21. 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
  22. 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
