Name That Cd

Recommended Posts

Sorry folks, it's me again. CD goes off to press on Monday and I still haven't named it. The Orrrrgan of Romsey Abbey seems a tad lame. The track listing is -

 

Guilmant - Scherzo Symphonique

Bridge - Adagio in E

Bach - Trio on Allein Gott

Bach - O Mensch

Franck - Choral 2

Scott - 2 Chorale Preludes

Bach - Allein Gott fugue

Gigout - Scherzo

Bach - Nun Komm 659

Bach - Trio 6

Warlock - Capriol Suite

 

Please, please, please, if anyone's got any decent suggestions for a name, I'd love to hear them. This is not an ego trip, it's someone panicking cos they've got 24 hours to come up with something!

 

Thanks

 

David

Hmmm... difficult to find a period or geographical link and it's probably best to avoid the obvious "organ masterworks", "pipes of splendour", "pulling out all the stops" and similar titles.

"Take Note!" would be eye catching on the shelf and I don't think it has been used for any classical CDs before.

Actually I think a header "Organ Music from Romsey Abbey" then "David Coram" underneath is as good as anything. By the way David 1) whose Capriol arrangement and 2) when is it in the shops?

And me.

 

I cannot see any problem with this title, David.

 

Incidentally - where has our music stand gone? It disappeared after your BUC concert last Wednesday. Could you ask Aidan if he has accidentally taken it home, please?

Fair enough - so it shall be!

 

Your music stand - no idea, Aidan brought one with him I believe. I will mention it.

David, although I couldn't think of any worthwhile alternative suggestion, I still think your original instinct was correct. Buyers do judge a CD by its cover and I'm sorry to say that what the others have proposed is frightfully dull.

One does have to take care though - with the inuendo brigade about and things like 'Organ Uplift', 'Organ Explosion' or 'The Mighty Organ' can also sound decidedly naf.

However, I think that most people would judge it by the picture, John - not necessarily the title. My CD is simply called

The Organ of Wimborne Minster

Played by Sean Tucker

 

It does have a nice picture on the front, though.

 

Sales are still good.

Yes, but you have the luxury of a bookstall to sell it through (and a church which financed your recording). I don't, so it's going to have to be a DIY job in the local specialist record shops, of which the nearest is Bournemouth. I'm not sure Romsey is going to be a huge selling point in Bournemouth.

Romsey also has a bookstall - or do you not want them to handle it? This is still the best place. Are you sure that the Abbey shop would not sell it?

 

This is probably going to be a little tricky if you do not use the Abbey shop as the main outlet.

The Abbey shop is closed until further notice for building works - until the Spring at least.

Review copies to all the journals etc. and sell via your website? Maybe Allegro Music might take some too. Put me down for one.

:lol:

If it were me, I would not bother with the "played by". "The Organ of Romsey Abbey" and "David Coram" is surely quite sufficient (as already suggested by Peter). The fewer words the better.

The Coram Collection

Vol 1 - Romsey Abbey

 

This leaves scope for a franchise. Vol 2 Canterbury Catherdral, Vol 3 RAH &c, and you never have to worry about what to call the next one!

I've just had a preview of this CD. Suffice it to say that those who have ordered a copy won't be disappointed. The organ sounds absolutely FABULOUS from beginning to end. It's not an over-large instrument, but it just oozes quality. And David's playing fully does it justice. I love his wonderful sense of spontaneity and engagement with the music. Boring it is not.

 

And just in case you're wondering, he hasn't paid me to write this!
