New Wolff Organ Sample

Recommended Posts

A few months ago I posted the specs of the new 61 stop Wolff organ in Christ Church Cathedral (Victoria, BC, Canada). For those interested here is the conclusion of Franck's A minor Chorale played by the cathedral organist Michael Gormley. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first recording of this instrument.

(this is not from a concert or a CD)

 

 

Cheers,

I tried to listen to it but the link has expired. Can you e-mail it to me? I live not too far from there.

 

Thanks.

 

 

Hi,

 

I'll try and repost the link sometime tomorrow when I get home. I have a couple of other tracks from the same session. I'll try and post them too.

By the way, when you say "not too far", do you live in Victoria? If so did you manage to hear any of the Westfield Center conference recitals held at the Cathedral last week?

I'm sorry, but I don't like this at all. I feel I was being shouted at, not performed to. The A minor Choral is very close to my heart and, to me, it lacked any sense of the emotion or darkness I feel it should convey. I am sure instrument and artiste are very capable, but I don't think this is the ideal repertoire to demonstrate either.
