But that's because you have a girlfriend, right? Wink

Counting duplicates, I have over 180 services on my iPod. Maybe I don't need to get out much. Twisted Evil

Damon, you go out and get a girlfriend NOW . Twisted Evil

My iPod? In addition to 180 services, there are over 300 hymns and 90 anthems. And as for the solo organ music... well shall we not go there?

BTW, everyone: Happy Friday! Very Happy

Not worth a new topic, perhaps, but I just picked up the recent Naxos CD of Wesley anthems. Choir of Clare College sing well, but of course it's mixed. After being accustomed to men and boys in this music, it's all rather different, shall we say. And the organ in Blessed be the God and Father just doesn't have the heft to make this music as thrilling as it should be.

Yet, well worth a listen. Fabulous collection of first rate anthems, assuming one likes this stuff...

Yet another BBTGAF ! Wink What else is on this disc Jason?

Speaking of Naxos, I've just purchased Handel: Music for the Chapel Royal, sung by (you guessed it) The Choir of the Chapel Royal accompanied by The Musicians Extra-ordinary, this quaint name continuing the tradition dating back to the 15th C where occasional musicians employed by the monarch are given tiles like "the musicians extra-ordinary for the violins" and "the music extra-ordinary for the windy instruments"
Works performed are: Let God Arise, I will Magnify Thee, As Pants the Hart, O Sing Unto the Lord.
All great stuff! Very Happy

to be fair the organ at Clare is very neoclassical, although they could have recorded it somewhere else

Was it too hard to walk down the street a bit to St. John's? Then we would have had men & boys at least.

James O'Donnell took a moment to journey up to Liverpool Anglican for a Spring Bank-Holiday organ recital on 28th May.

Interesting program of bon bons:

Bach: T&F in D minor
Saint-Saens: The Swan ( Embarassed)
Franck: P, F & V
Saint-Saens: Fantasie in Eb (now that's better)
Vierne: Clair de Lune, Carillon de Westminster
Walton: Popular Song from Facade
Widor: Finale, Sym 6

Phew. Considering the plethora of austere music dished out to us at the Abbey, it's rather nice to note that Mr. O'Donnell is no musical snob.

CHeers Damon!

Watched it, and didnt think that it did the organ much justice...
all these silly little irrelevant things. however, several friends of mine appeared on it so it was worth watching!
