Martin Cooke Posted July 7, 2012 Share Posted July 7, 2012 I have played this piece for years. It was a favourite of Harry Gabb's and it popped up a lot on a Saturday afternoon at St Paul's when he used to be in charge. I remember him playing it to the choristers at the end of a Saturday afternoon practice, on the piano. One of us was pressed into playing the pedal part. Anyway, what's the 'business' about the little coda section that some performers stitch on to the end of the OUP printed version. I am sure that HG developed a habit of doing this, and didn't Noel Rawsthorne also do it on the old Toccata LP of his? Is this how it appears in the other published version of this piece... am I correct in thinking it is the last of Three Pieces?... AND... if so, what are the other pieces like? [Am I alone in feeling slight irritation that when posting a genuine thought or query, answers or follow-ups are frequently completely off-topic? - I fully expect responses to this genuine query to go off on a ramble covering every other Toccata known to man, and really, I'd just love to know the answers to the above!!] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
