  1. For many years I have lurked on this forum, visiting every day but rarely posting. There are many wiser and better informed members, and I feel poorly qualified to contribute. I am greatly saddened by sudden collapse of Manders, and the dispersal of their wonderful team of craftsmen. As others have said, their instruments will be a long-lived reminder of their work. I hope many forumites will join the new forum and have every expectation it will continue where this one leaves off. Many thanks to Steve for getting this set up in good time.
  2. Daniel Chorzempa recorded Vierne's Symphonie No1 for Philips Classics on the 1889 C-C organ at St Sernin Toulouse in August 1987.
  3. The Frobenius organ in All Saints Kingston-Upon-Thames has glass shutters to both the Swell and Positiv divisions.
  4. I have a vague memory that Anthony Halliday and Iain Simcock performed Beethoven's 5th Piano Concerto (the Emperor) at Westminster Cathedral many years ago with the piano at floor level beneath the west end organ gallery. The seating was turned round so the audience was facing the performers. I cannot recall who arranged the orchestral parts for organ.
  5. There are several other recordings made at Weingarten which haven't yet been mentioned: 1. André Isoir recorded three volumes of JSB works there in Oct 1988 and 1990 on Calliope (CAL9710, CAL9715, and CAL9717). 2. Franz Raml recorded music by Justin Heinrich Knecht in Oct 1996 on MDG (MDG 614 0764-2) 3. Franz Raml recorded music by Johann Ludwig Krebs in 1999, again on MDG (MDG 614 0971-2) 4. Heinrich Hamm recorded a mixed recital in June 1986 on Audite (Audite 95.408) 5. Ludger Lohmann recorded music by Johann Heinrich Christian Rinck in Sept1996 on Naxos (Naxos 8.55
  6. I've just stumbled across a live video stream of this evening's recital at Gloucester Cathedral being given by Jonathan Hope. Parry and Vierne 2. https://www.facebook.com/gloucestercathedralorganrecitals/videos/1354141388019622/
