father-willis Posted May 6, 2008 Share Posted May 6, 2008 Ever been asked to give a recital and just not found inspiration in the "normal" recital stuff? I'm sure it must happen to others. There are times when I just want to play something which I can be fairly certain that no one in the potential audience has heard (unless there was a member of this forum present!). Having now a fairly large organ CD collection, when I go looking among the racks for something new it's really the unusual repertoire that interests (apart from a stunning player in some equally stunning setting) but the usual bland selection and - if I may put it thus "parish" - recorded recital just receives a wide yawn and the CD goes back in its place on the shelf. The topic concerning Mulet and out of print items started me thinking and I wonder if anyone out there in "console land" has a piece by David Clegg (1867-1923) called "A Church Service interrupted by a thunderstorm"? It's a real hoot but could be a very entertaining recital piece! It was recorded by Kevin Bowyer at Blackburn Cathedral in 2004 on a disc called "The Storm" (Regent), a collection ofstorm illustrative pieces (Lemmens, Neukomm, Lefebure-Wely etc). If you want some entertaining listening I recommend this! If anyone has this Clegg piece would you consider letting me have a copy? Thanks in advance - for a copy and some intersting comments, Father-Willis. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
