A Second Chance

Recommended Posts

I don't think Cynic's ever claimed that he ran out, only that he was furious about his organ being "smashed up". Nor did he stop composing, not even organ music. Epilogue (1974) and St Louis comes to Clifton (1977) both post-date the Gloucester rebuild.

 

I did not quote Cynic, but others sources I have. I agree there are

differencies between them; the fact remains true, a significant

british composer was hurt in his very homeland.

Glad you liked it (the cheque's in the post ;) )

 

I too have to wade into the argument on the side of the present organ. It may not be a conventional cathedral organ, but it is a superb musical instrument, and excellently matches the acoustic of the building, and so much more successful than the other new organs in similar establishments. In my view, the world would be a much poorer place without it!
