Martin Cooke Posted January 12, 2021 Share Posted January 12, 2021 St Paul's has announced a series of recitals celebrating 150 years of the 1872 Willis organ. I don't think I found the details on the St Paul's site, but got them from a tweet. However, this is a link to the first of William Fox's Bach series which he gave to an empty cathedral last Sunday. In the opening shots, you get the full 'poster' covering all the recitals. I thoroughly recommend listening to this performance of William's with some seasonal music for New Year, Baptism of Jesus and, coming up soon, Presentation of Christ in the Temple/Purification/Candlemas. Having played BWV 684, Christ unser Herr zum Jordan kam, at church that morning myself without a page turner, it is quite amusing to see the lengths [you will see this turns out to be a pun of sorts] that William has to go to to manage this piece without a turner. (Yesterday, I was engaged in the exercise of preparing a manageable score of Dubois' Fiat Lux for Candlemas.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
