Mark Taylor Posted May 22, 2011 Share Posted May 22, 2011 Yesterday I paid my first visit ever to Gloucester Cathedral. Looking in the bookshop for something about the organ, I came across The organ of Gloucester Cathedral by John Balsdon. An excellent, well produced booklet which comes with a fascinating CD. Thirteen tracks providing a history of the organ and including five tracks by Herbert Sumsion from 1949 to 1967. Wonderful stuff, here is the full listing. Herbert Sumsion recorded in 1949 S S Wesley, Larghetto in f sharp J S Bach, CP: Komm, suesser Tod, komm, sel'ge Ruh!, BWV 478 Herbert Sumsion recorded in 1965 Whitlock, Five Short Pieces: Folk Tune and Scherzo Herbert Sumsion recorded in 1967 J S Bach, Prelude and Fugue in b, BWV 544 John Sanders recorded in 1980 C H Lloyd, Allegretto Guilmant, Marche funèbre et Chant séraphique Op. 17 David Briggs recorded in 1997 Improvised Variations on Baa Baa Black sheep David Briggs recorded in 2001 Saint-Saens, transcr.
