  1. And I think there’s a piece by Daniel Roth, Joies, douleurs et gloire de Marie - I’ve never played it though....
  2. The Suite Mariale by de Maleingreau has a ‘Sept Douleurs’ movement. It’s still in print (and in copyright)... but you may find it takes a while to get hold of it.
  3. Yes. op 129 no 4. It’s on an LP of Jongen and Reger from Southwark by my old teacher Robert Munns which I listened to incessantly when I was a lot younger.....
  4. Reger Melodia - Op 129, I think.
  5. Excellent! Glad it worked out.
  6. https://www.bardic-music.com/index.html Any use?
  7. I’m pretty sure Kevin Bowyer plays the Trio Sonata.
  8. Try Daniel Cook at Durham - they’re on his Priory discs.
  9. Yes, that’s me. Thanks Owen - these are very good ideas. S
  10. Hi folks. I'm in need of a capable page-turner (possibly who is able to act as occasional registrant too) for some recording sessions in St Giles' Cathedral Edinburgh on the evenings of Feb 11 and 12 - contemporary British repertoire of some difficulty, so page-turning it can't be busked. My usual sources of help are not available on this occasion. If any forum members might be able to help, do please drop me a PM - the sessions might finish quite late as there's a lot to do in two evenings. We can of course discuss payment as required- beer, food, money, or a combination thereof. Thanks!
  11. I think Mit Fried und Freud is the only Candlemas-appropriate one - austere (but wonderful).
  12. There’s a very good Lumen ad revelationem by Dupre - the last of the Six Antiennes pour le Temps de Noel. Quite fiddly, but worth the effort. And L’Orgue Mystique Suite 11 for the Purification has a striking final movement, not as hard as the Dupre.
  13. There is a lot of music by Judith Bingham - have a look at Resonus Classics website if you’re curious - and there are several new pieces in the offing. Cecilia McDowall has written quite extensively (very good series of pieces on George Herbert poems and a newish set of pieces on the Advent Antiphons), and there are now several pieces by Judith Weir. Errolyn Wallen has written for the instrument too, and Joanna Marsh has written several pieces. Elsa Barraine wrote a very good Prelude and Fugue. The Orgelbuchlein project includes works by quite a few female composers. Janet Owen Thomas and Jan
  14. I see someone mentioned the delay already!
  15. I’d also suggest incorporating playing while looking at an imaginary monitor or mirror into your preparation, especially at tricky junctions in the music. However well you know the music, it can be disconcerting to assimilate this aspect on an unfamiliar organ and sometimes you have to look at a picture which isn’t even in your peripheral vision. Arrive in time to familiarise yourself with any vagaries of camera and screen set up, to ensure that the camera is correctly set and focussed (ask before changing the settings), and to get used to the controls for the system - in a big building this c
