2 May 2010 - Yours truly celebrates 20 years as a professional church musician with a 3 p.m. concert,

sanctuary of Asbury United Methodist Church, 6101 University Ave, Madison, WI USA.

 

Music by Buxtehude, Walther, Peeters, Orwig, Blin, Karg-Elert, Kern, Purdy, Joyce Jones, Walker.

 

It's hard to believe I've been at this for 20 years (really 30+ if you count the fact that my father,

pastor in a small church, began roping me into helping out with music at the age of 14-15!).

 

Best to all,

 

- G

Hi

 

On Saturday, Bradford Cathedral is the venue for the second of our Centenary Events. Apart from the Cathedral Organ (see http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi...c_index=A00542), we have arranged for the Wingfield Organ (http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi?Fn=Rsearch&rec_index=E00205) to be in the cathedral for most of the rest of the year. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to play this instrument - it's a reconstruction of an organ from the Tudor period.

 

We also have 2 chamber organs coming, a Fairground organ (for those who like the lighter side of things) - and hopefully a display by the Cinema Organ Society. As I commented in another post, I will be playing a Harmonium at times during the day, and the Early Music Shop will be there with their kits of portative organs, along with displays by various organisations, and various other things describing how the organ works, etc. Well worth a visit - Bradford Cathedral is just at the edge of the city centre, close to Forster Square Station, and an easy walk from Bradford Interchange.

 

The day concludes with a special choral evensong by the cathedral choir, and a recital by cathedral organist Andrew Teague, including a new piece commissioned for the event and written by our president-elect, Paul Fisher.

 

Hope to see some of you on the day.

 

Every Blessing

 

Tony

(President, Bradford Organists' Association)

Thanks, Paul, for an excellent recital. It was good to put a face to the name. I'm glad that the Bower parade didn't intrude!

Sorry that this is after the event, not before, but last evening Dr Francis Jackson (why isn't he "Sir"?) played at St Peter's, Stoke-on-Trent. How on earth does he do it? At the end of the programme he played Naiades and Carillon de Westminster, not a note out of place using 92 year old hands and feet. Legend is an overused word but this man surely is.

I certainly think he ought to be. I think KBE or even GCBE would be appropriate.

 

The cynic in me wonders whether he doesn't 'move in the right circles'!

I would be happy just to be able to get on a bloody organ at 92, never mind play it to a decent standard!

 

I once heard Ralph Downes play the RFH organ in his late eighties and came away with exactly the same thought :lol:

This Wednesday (23rd June), Clive Driskill-Smith plays at Christchurch Priory in Dorset. Doors open at 7 for 7.30pm.

 

The programme is:

 

Flourish for an Occasion - WILLIAM HARRIS (1883-1973)

Choral No 2 - CESAR FRANCK (1822-1890)

Organ Concerto Op 4 No 5 in F - G. F. HANDEL (1685-1759)

Larghetto in F# minor - S. S. WESLEY (1810-1876)

Tuba Tune - NORMAN COCKER (1889-1953)

Salamanca - GUY BOVET (b.1942)

The annual evening concert series at Christchurch is excellent and deserves to be better known. Forthcoming recitals in this year's series include Margaret Phillips, Thomas Heywood, Carleton Etherington and Hugh Morris. The ticket price (£6) is modest, and the setting is inspirational. All the recitals use the (mobile) nave console. There is ample parking, and a good collection of pubs and restaurants for post- (or pre-) concert imbibing...

Peter,

 

I would like to go to this, but then I saw what was on at Evensong at York and had a fuel/time/musical debate with myself!

 

D'Arcy and his mother are both wonderful characters. His programme looks excellent - enjoy!

 

Best Wishes.

It was a spledid recital, but was spoilt slightly by a cypher half way through a piece, but was duly stopped, as was a bad one, and Micael Smith, the organist, and Paul Derret, got it sorted in quick time, hats off to all concerned. "Play continued" with out further hitch. Met them both a few times now, and his mum is certainly a great lady.

For something that will make a change, Keith Hearnshaw is there on aug 31st, and will certainly be different, recomended

Peter
