Nice job by David Rhodes: very jazzy piece by the sound of it albeit not one I have ever come across before.

When I was younger my Dad said of organ music that you can "always expect fireworks from the French" and a fine example thereof can be heard in this 2011 clip from Notre Dame, Paris. The music was composed by one of the Cathedral's organists, Yves Castagnet (rather an appropriate name for a musician?) who was appointed to Notre Dame in 1988 at the age of 23.

Setting: "Messe Salve Regina" (Castagnet) // Grand Orgue: Olivier Latry // Orgue de Choeur: Yves Castagnet

Well worth a listen: quite dramatic!

This can be obtained as a CD or iTunes download. I also heard his ‘Poème sur un Choral Imaginaire’ at ND some years ago - an extended piece using both the west end and east end organs. This is available on Youtube too and deserves to be better known - an amazing sonic experience!

Now here's one I'm pretty sure you'll all enjoy. I had the privilege of watching Richard Hills at the 3/66 Kimball organ of Dickinson High School....via live stream! It's still there for folks to watch so, enjoy while it remains.

This may be of interest to some folks on here. Over the past couple of years I have been working on transferring my collection of Reg Dixon 78rpm's over to YouTube. I have some 500 in the collection, though some of these are duplicates (which have come in very handy!) , and I don't yet have all of his 78rpm output. As well as that, I'm also uploading what other organ 78rpm's I have, and may collect in the future.
