Sounds good. I've just got back in after playing, at very short notice, for a Songs of Praise in a tiny country church. The organ (not on NPOR) is a one-manual & full pedalboard chamber organ in a mahogany case. It's just been totally restored. No evidenceof original builder or the rebulder, but it's a nice instrument with diapasons 8', 4' & 2', stopt diapason, gamba, and pedal bourdon. I enjoyed playing it and got a very good sound out of it with a congregation of about 40. Hope to go back again!

I think the piece you played by Noel Rawsthorne is actually called Hornpipe Humoresque.
My first hearing of this was a couple of years ago, played by Gordon Stewart when he did a concert tour of Australia. It's an instant winner, and a lot of fun! Laughing Laughing

There is a wonderful recording of it on Regent 233, "A Malvern Mixture". I went to an Evensong at the Malvern Priory Church last year- a very fine venue in one of my favourite districts of England.

I havent heard it on that organ, but I went to Malvern Priory a few years ago with the Swansea Organ Association we also popped into the college to have a bash on the organ!

Rob, another fun piece by Noel Rawsthorne is "Line Dance" from his Dance Suite. It is recorded by Christopher Herrick on Hyperion CD "Organ Fireworks IX" and contains rollicking arrangements of Simple Gifts, Old Macdonald Had A Farm, Sailor's Hornpipe (again!!) and ends with On Ilkley Moor baht 'at'.
Inspired by the dancing of Michael Flatley in Lord of the Dance, Rawsthorne wrote the Dance Suite for the opening of the restored Willis organ at Huddersfield Town Hall (and hence the reference to Ilkley Moor!)
Enjoy! Laughing Laughing

This sounds good! What's the title and publisher of the book? As an aside, I've been practising 'Paean' by Oliphant Chukkerbutty. Can't wait to put that on a service sheet Laughing

That name doesn't come up in Google. Do you know anything more about him? (or it?)

I've got something on him somewhere - but it's in a magazine somewhere in a box in the garage. There was some discussion abut him a while back - in Choir & Organ I think. He had a number of Christian names and used different combinations in his work as a composer, church organist & cinema organist. He was a noted organist of his time, holding a post in London (Lambeth?) for many years until his death in the 1930's (?). Very little of his music has survived. I found the Paean on a CD by Kevin Bowyer and managed to get a special reprint of the music from Bosworth's. I've uploaded this to Z-share. The link is:

Enjoy it!
