oscar_rook Posted January 31, 2010 Share Posted January 31, 2010 The recent mention of St Peter's Brighton reminded me of a broadcast in the mid 1960s of the complete Symphonie No1 of Vierne performed by the church's organist Gavin Brown. As an enthusiastic schoolboy, I wrote to him and he invited me to join him there after Sunday morning Mattins for a tour to the instrument. It was the first time I had seen a HNB rebuilt with the then-trendy rectangular thumb pistons. I recall little of the detail but two things that stuck in my mind were the thunderous pedal Ophicleide and the tierce mixtures on the Great and Swell. Where did Gavin Brown go after leaving St Peter's? I cannot remember seeing his name as a recitalist thereafter. Regards Oscar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
