  1. I'm interested to learn Germani's toccata op 12 but I can't seem to find it avaliable anywhere online. Does anyone know the publisher or a website its avaliable from?
  2. Thank you for your replies. Would Barenreiter be a suitable choice for Mendelssohn, Buxtehude and others?
  3. I always supposed that the Buxtehude edition would be a bit dodgy (maybe includes C clefs and all that). I'm wanting to work specifically on the Finale from Vierne's Symphony no. 1. Are there any notation errors in dover's publication of that?
  4. Does anyone have any first hand experience using the unbeatably priced Dover publications of Vierne's symphonies 1-3, Franck's organ works, Buxtehude's complete organ works, Brahms, Mendelssohn and various other major composers, as I'm thinking of buying a few. I know of the problems with the bindings and the Widor edition but apart from that are there any other things to look out for? Many Thanks
  5. Never heard of these. Any more details?

    Is only the east end organ played for services? When do they use the West-end one? I've heard, its under Mr. Cleobury's control.

    I agree. I liked Emmanuel when I played it, although it sounded rather out of tune, maybe this has something to do with the "winding" of the instrument which may be the reason for that "wind control" stop. Clare is way too bright, and has an awful swell.

    Interested to know the view of members of this board on the Oxbridge organs. I personally like Queens, Cambridge and New and Exeter in Oxford very much. Don't particularly fancy Christ Church. Which ones do you find the best, and which ones should go to the scrap.
  9. Personent Hodie was found to be quite fun!
  10. Quite right, as well a few other famous musical figures before.
  11. For the past 10 years or so, the old 4 manual Hill organ at St Mary Abbots, Kensington has been out of action, and a small electronic has been in use for some time. I remember being told a few years ago about a "restoration project", and rebuilding the organ up in the Triforium of the church. Does anyone know the status of this project, or if the Hill will be put back in working order anytime? A pipe organ is definately needed in a church of this scale!
  12. Quite right, it certainly isn't anything remarkable and coming to remember it, the organ contains some of the most loud and horrible trumpets! Maybe I shouldn't have recommended this one! But they are quite good for bookings, and the acoustic is an advantage.
