TimEyles Posted October 1, 2008 Share Posted October 1, 2008 As part of the Vaughan Williams 50th anniversary celebrations churches are being asked to use as much VW music as possible in their services on 12th October, which was VW's birthday (in 1872). There are obviously lots of anthems to choose from and several hymn tunes, but NOT much organ music. However, in my quest to play something different I discovered, in my extremely untidy music cupboard, a copy of VW's Prelude and Fugue in C minor. Is anybody out there familiar with it? It was written in 1926 and, whilst not finding it immediately wonderful, have persevered with the prelude and I think it's wonderful. It's not like any organ music I've ever played before. I've never seen it on a recital programme or CD, but it definitely deserves more airings, especially in this anniversary year.
