Clavecin Posted January 18, 2010 Share Posted January 18, 2010 Heard this piece played at Blackburn Cathedral last Wednesday by Jonathan Vaughn (Assistant at Wells). It is a transcription by Lionel Rogg and published by UMP of Liszt's 2nd Légende for piano about St Francis de Paola walking on the waves (the 1st is about St Francis of Assisi preaching to the birds). This formed the centre-piece of Jonathan's excellent recital, it makes a pretty spectacular organ piece (on a suitable instrument in a suitable acoustic of course; Blackburn ticks both boxes here). I had a look at Jonathan's score afterwards, it looks a bit more difficult than BACH and Ad Nos, but I would guess that the piano original would be even more difficult! Jonathan must have put a lot of hours into this to get it to such a standard. There are plenty of piano performances on Youtube, but no organ ones. Has anyone else come across this?
