Guest Hector5 Posted February 5, 2010 Share Posted February 5, 2010 I've become somewhat fond of 'new age' style organ music/improvisations (Gunnar Idenstam being one example). I've been a fan of Paul Halley's music for some years now, and have performed a number of his compositions/arrangements at church. It's lovely stuff and worth investigating. His Triptych CD blew my wife and I away when we first heard it. He has collaborated with the Saxophonist Paul Winter (http://www.livingmusic.com/) on many projects, including various Solstice concerts at St John the Divine Cathedral, New York, where he was organist for some years. The Celtic Solstice CD is well worth downloading. Much of the music is recorded in the atmospheric conditions of the cathedral of St John the Divine, New York. His choral arrangements are also fascinating - one in particular superimposes plainsong, Siya Hamba, and Amazing Grace, and it works! His website is excellent, and there are audio examples available if you click on the CDs. Hey ho, back to my raffia mat! Hector Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
