Farnborough Abbey

Recommended Posts

I have just received notice of this summer's recital programme at Farnborough Abbey, and thought I'd pass them on. It's a real gem of an organ and, if I remember correctly, got several nominations for Best Small Organ in an extensive thread about favourite organs last year. The recitals are free, there's tea a biscuits afterwards, and for all those who have expressed their disappointment in the Why Do We Bother and Cheap Music threads, the audience (when I have been there) sits and listens, and is highly appreciative.

Would this Moondog be the blind American rock musician/composer I wonder? I was not aware that he had written for organ unless this is a transcription. Anyone kow anything? (Oh, and thanks, J, for the list of recitals)
