  1. Thanks very much, James ... that is very helpful. Roger
  2. Many thanks to both Rowland and Vox Humana for their comments. À propos the composition of the Les Cloches ... is it possible that Vierne would have remembered the chime in 1927, however irritating it was in 1925? À propos possible mentions of this recital at St Michael's, I have checked local journals to no success so far. I'll look into Musical Opinion, and the like shortly ... thanks for those thoughts. I am really intrigued by the Magle.dk organ forum ... does anyone use it now, or has in the past? I have tried to get into it, but with no success. The quote in my original post is the first time that I've seen Vierne's visit to St Michael's mentioned. One more question ... is there in France a society that keeps Vierne's archive - Les Amis de Louis Vierne or something similar? I can't find anything like that. Many thanks.
  3. I'm wondering whether anyone here can help me solve a little mystery. For 12 years (1973–85) I worked at St Michael's College, Tenbury Wells. Researching for a history of the College and the organ I came across a reference to the fact that, in May 1925, Louis Vierne visited and played a recital. I have so far been unable to uncover any details of this visit. Quite by chance, the other day, I stumbled upon a website [philosopherswheel.com/Vierne] which revealed that Vierne, after playing at Hinckley on 5th May 1925, wrote Les Cloches de Hinckley on the train to Tenbury. This information came apparently from an organ music forum [Magle.dk] posted by 'Thierry59'. If anyone can shed light on any of this then I would be delighted. Thank you ... Roger Judd
