Guest Cynic Posted April 21, 2008 Share Posted April 21, 2008 Dear Friends, a while ago, probably in an Off-topic aside, I mentioned that I have copies of a number of Mulet's pieces that have not been seen for quite a while which I am prepared to share. I recorded them all as part of a project with Priory in 1988. A number of you responded, only for me to lose record of your messages - time has passed and (at last) today I had a long dig for them, searching through my stacks! If your taste is for high-jinks along the lines of Carillon-Sortie or Tu es Petra you will be disappointed. If you'd like highly attractive and thoughtful material, much of it as good as anything written at the time, then these might be for you. I've scanned them and can e-mail them as pdfs to anyone who sends me their e-mail address for the purpose. Give me a day or two, that's all I beg. I'm up to my elbows in saw-dust and there's more mess calling out to be made just up the yard. If you have anything particularly rare in your collection, I would be most happy to know if you'd be prepared to send pdfs in exchange some time. [Our colleague Orwig has already done this a few times, I owe you, sir!] The items are as follows: Sortie Douce (manuals only) Petit Offertoire (manuals only, totally gorgeous) Priere Offertoire Funebre (as heart-rending as a Franck Chorale) Meditation Religieuse Offertoire pour la fete du tres-Saint-Rosaire (still in manuscript, never published, written in memory of Lynnwood Farnam). While all are worth having, if your time is short IMHO Petit Offertoire and Offertoire Funebre are the really special ones that need bringing out and playing more.
