Charles Wooler Posted May 14, 2009 Share Posted May 14, 2009 I am giving a recital the first weekend in October this year to celebrate the centenary of the glorious (if a little eccentric)Arthur Harrison in St John the Baptist, Grainger Street Newcastle where I am assistant. http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsearch.cgi...ec_index=N04076 We have decided against re-creating the original programme that was played by Sidney Nicholson for the simple reason that it is impossible to recreate. The programme booklet has helpful titles such as Concerto in F (Allegro) Handel...... What I'd love to include however is a piece that is exactly contemporary with the organ itself and preferably English. The closest I have come up with is the Stanford Postlude in d minor at the end of the second set which bears the date 1908. At the very least, this would be contemporary with the design of the instrument if not the very beginnings of its construction on the workshops in Durham. Any thoughts anyone?
