Royal Albert Hall Proms recital in General discussion Posted September 5 15 hours ago, Peter Allison said: I have it on reasonable authority that the organ is one of those difficult instruments to record (like the 2 Liverpools, and St Pauls) for reasons that those who know more about it than me can say . To close a recording and the different Divisions are not heard in context, and to far, and the sound gets less direct and the room/acoustics spoil it. True. I have an LP of St Paul's demonstrating just about every section of the organ. Bearing in mind such widely separated divisions as the Positive organ, the Dome Tubas and the West-end Royal Trumpets, and how each was reproduced so clearly, there is no way that all of these could possibly have been recorded using the same microphone(s) located in a central position! I'm sure they must have been moved around for the best effect.
