New College, Oxford webcasts

Recommended Posts

I believe I found out about the New College webcasts on this forum. I've been listening regularly and I'm terribly impressed. I knew the Choir was up there with the best, but over the last few months I've been mightily struck by how good the organ sounds in accompaniment. I've never been one of those who regarded it as a freak, or a child of its time, and I've liked it on the few occasions I've heard it live, but I'm quite bowled over with both it and the way it's handled on these broadcasts.

Haven't I always said it?! Excellent machine, sadly neglected.

That's very kind.

 

Justason was involved from the beginning of the webcasts until July this year, but has now moved on.

 

(He loved the GDB).

Confess I had to hear this to believe it. But, sure as shootin' - the psalm and Stanford in C, excellent, the organ skillfully handled and effective. I'm shocked. Foundations modest, but lovely, with a nice cantabile quality, just adequate for the chapel. Of course, it's clear as a BELL.
