This comes from Richard's youtube channel - if you haven't explored it yet, it's worth a look. He is a great communicator, plays wonderfully well, and is heavily into his tech and his Hauptwerk set up. He is about to have a new console modelled on York's new consoles but he tells you all about it. You could be on the site for days!! Lucky there are a couple of bank holidays coming up soon, perhaps!!

I am an avid watcher of his channel an a couple of others. But I personally feel that Richard speaks to my inner geek ( recording wise). And as you said Martin, he is a great communicator and is so enthusiastic. Pity there are not more like him

Any recommendations re others, Peter? Yes, I love the geek side of it!

and I sponsored a friends recording of the Whitlock Sonata (and other works) in Rochdale Town Hall, was there for the recording with Darius B. He used mega expensive (£1800 each) Mics (5 of them) plus a core sound/soundfield type for an experiment (tho not used in the recording itself) and recorded in DSD SACD   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xL5nRpk1Fb8

The Organ Recital that this post was originally heralding is now up on the Beauty in Sound website. But also, I thoroughly recommend a visit to the Truro Cathedral website and a listen to any or all of the services that have been livestreamed in recent days. The psalm singing, for example, on Maundy Thursday, is stunningly good, and every performance at any of the services marks out this choir, its director and accompanist as being of the absolute top drawer in cathedral circles. The singing is beautifully done, even if you're not a fan - (I am!!) - of Kelly in C Mag and Nunc (at Easter evensong). 

Another highlight... Will Fox's Bach recital at St Paul's this afternoon. That opening scale in the D major P&F- phwoar!!!
