handsoff Posted March 24, 2008 Share Posted March 24, 2008 One for the electronic timers.... R3 on Thursday am (although in Wednesday's listings) at 01.00 is playing an hour of Buxtehude to mark the 300th anniversary of his death. The player is Hans Davidsson, but no mention of the organ's location. Rob Cowan has just played a recording of part of Widor's 6th from Hexham Abbey - very nice too... I went to my old Alma Mater at Warwick yesterday to hear excerpts (sadly all too few) from the Vierne Messe Solennelle during the morning mass. The organ sounded good with a nice fanfare on the chamades to welcome Easter and quite a few bits on full belt. Annoyingly, to bring up another thread, a large percentage of the congregation chattered during the final voluntary. Their numbers, sadly, included the acting DoM who came into the nave and started greeting people. Now THAT is being rude to the organist.
