According to Wikipedia [yes, I know.....] César Franck was born on this day in 1822. I shall play some of his music later....

 

I, in February, share a birthday with Widor, Segovia and Delibes, not to mention W.H. Auden, Douglas Bader (to whom a sort of semi-uncle of mine was batman during WWII), Nina Simone and Wish Bone, an American rapper. Mmmmm

 

Oh God, and Robert Mugabe.

attending a performance of 'La Nativite' at Blackburn Cathedral, played by Richard Tanner DoM.

Richard played very well and the organ sounded absolutely superb.

 

 

 

I was at Armley on sunday (along with Ron Poole, another board member) to hear Graham Barber play 'La Nativite', again, nice performance ( not that I would know, too modern for me) and organ was in fine fettle as well. and he let me record it too :blink:
