Martin Cooke Posted September 22, 2022 Share Posted September 22, 2022 ... Heathcote Statham's neat little Divertimento on 'Monkland.' I know... it's hardly the piece of the century but I have known this piece for over 50 years. Statham recorded it at Norwich on a little 45rpm EP along with a Handel Organ Concerto and the 'Giant Fugue.' Goodness knows why it made such an impression on me... the EP was an unexpected gift from a sister... she'd actually bought it because of the Organ Concerto which she knew - (this is back in about 1967) - and then of course the Tuba get a good outing... and 'Monkland' itself, is a a great little tune. It's published in the Harvest volume in the old green Novello 'seasonal' album series. The other lovely piece in this is the one by William Lloyd-Webber on a Harvest hymn that is no longer sung.
