  1. The CD is also available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. M
  2. Dedication of the new Rieger-organ will be broadcast live on Austrian TV tomorrow at 9 AM (the video should then be available for another 7 days in the ORF-TVthek). M
  3. Thanks for the clarification. I'm afraid I was led astray by some internet misinformation and the rather convincing sound ... Didn't think this would happen with an "ordinary" digital organ ...
  4. This is the sound of the actual cathedral organ, as stated in the description under the video, and Nicholas Freestone is playing the 3-manual remote console (also seen here). The Viscount organ has a completely different look.
  5. Tuning-slots, usually placed at one diameter of the pipe from its top, are also one of the main characterstics of the 19th century French organ building (Cavaillé-Coll). Here is an excerpt from the Laukhuff catalogue with the relevant terminology:
  6. How about some wonderful technical drawings of Cavillé-Coll organs? French digital library “Gallica” has a couple of those: Dessins de mécanismes d'orgues Plans du grand orgue de Saint-Sulpice Coupes de claviers Orgues de tous modèles (these aren’t exactly technical drawings, but are nonetheless interesting to explore). M
  7. You can listen to Latry's RAH concert here. The music starts at 3:39.

  9. The second piece is "Lei Rei" (Marche de Tourenne) by the French composer Edouard Marcel Victor Rouher (1857–1940). It is a part of his collection of 450 Noëls and the score is available on IMSLP: https://imslp.org/wiki/450_Noëls_(Rouher%2C_Edouard_Marcel_Victor) (either pp. 38–40 in Vol. 1 or pp. 4–6 in the "10 Pièces"). It seems like a lot of fun to play. 😄 M
  10. Dupre’s arrangement of the Sinfonia can be found in Vol. 12 of Dupre’s now rather infamous edition of Bach’s complete organ works: Oeuvres Complètes pour Orgue de J. S. Bach, annotés et doigtées par Marcel Dupré, Volume XII.
  11. When I finally decided to buy myself new copies of OUP’s Wedding Music and Ceremonial Music for Organ – the ones I had were stolen from the organ loft several years ago ? – I also noticed that a new Book of Funeral and Memorial Music for Organ would be released soon. So I ordered this as well and received my copy a couple of weeks ago. The first thing I noticed after unpacking the album was that it was much thinner than both OBWM and OBCM (and that the back of my copy was damaged). The collection contains 28 pieces, arranged alphabetically by composer, with 12 original works and 16 arrang
  12. The setting of the Mass is by the College’s DoM Neil Cox. One can listen to the service here …
  13. So, in the Gloria the chants come first, and in the Sanctus they come second. Why? We all know that Wikipedia isn’t necessarily a very trustworthy source of information, however, the article about the French Organ Mass does seem to offer some explanation. It’s all about how the alternatim practice was regulated in the ceremonial that was being used in a particular diocese. M
  14. I guess it’s just a plain Gemshorn … M
  15. It is the Debierre organ from 1894 in the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre in Vannes in France. See here or here. M
