themythes Posted September 8, 2008 Share Posted September 8, 2008 I have just come across the posting by MM about notable female organists (June 12 -The James Bond Thread) in which he reminds us that at their best they can equal or surpass most mere males. There must, equally, be a large number of unsung female heroines who rarely catch the eye; for some years now I have been searching the internet in vain to ascertain the progress, if any, of a lady, who, some years ago advertised an organ recital in the American Guild of Organists “Music” magazine of October 1978. Her programme, from Christ Church, Detroit, was one that many of us would not undertake unadvisedly, lightly or wantonly – the Bach F major Toccata, Vierne 1 finale, Dupre G minor P & F, Franck 3 and some Peeters to round it off. Only someone seriously minded would essay such repertoire and I am keen to know what sort of reputation she may now enjoy. Google throws up nothing that appears to be relevant but I cannot believe that such an arresting name as hers would not have attracted much attention from concert promoters. How the devil could anyone fade into obscurity with a name like “Randy Lynn Bangs”? David Harrison Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
