Choir Man Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 Did anyone else watch the BBC 4 programme on Wells Cathedral on Tuesday night? Sadly I didn't find the first programme in the series (Wakefield) very inspiring however Tuesday's offering was much better. Amongst other things were many long contemplative shots of the organ through the scissor arches before the camera was invited up to the console for a discussion with the organist. Later in the film there was some footage of the choir singing. It's not often that organists get to speak in public so it was interesting to hear his views on music and worship. I don't know the organist and he doesn't seem to be one of the cathedral's current residents (according to the cathedral website). Also I don't know the piece the choir were singing, if anyone can shed some light on this I would be grateful. I have fond memories of Wells, having sung there with a visiting choir on a number of occasions when I was still a treble. The programme is still available on BBC iPlayer until next Tuesday. Best wishes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
