British organ music

Post by HullandHellandHalifax » Tue Oct 27, 2009 11:04 pm

As a result of posting the Stainer organ method in the organ schools thread I thought it would be nice to post these pieces by Stainer. I played the first two last sunday and was pleasantly surprised, hope you all like them too. I don't have Book 1, can anyone fill the gap please.
best wishes

Since Big Bri has opened a Brit-thread I of course have to jump in immediately and support it!

Here's two Coleridge-Taylor albums from Sibley @ Eastman-Rochester that may have passed people by:
Coleridge-Taylor-Hull Organ Album vol 1.pdf
Coleridge-Taylor-Hull Organ Album vol 2.pdf
and also Elgar's two sonatas - the first in what I think is Brian's scan;
Elgar 1895 op28 Organ Sonata 1 g (Breitkopf).pdf
Elgar-Atkins 1930 op87a Organ Sonata 2 after the Severn Suite 1930.pdf

Its a seven manual organ that needs continual restarting and is prone to outside interference from rap musicians.

Fly the flag Jason, here it is. Can't you tell Walton was a composer of film music, this piece must have been timed to the millisecond hence its length. Good piece and makes a change from the Elgar Pomp No.4 which is at least playable for us mortals unlike No.1 dished up by Lemare.

But Lemare dished up a lot of great stuff. Difficult stuff.

Anecdote: Elgar was once asked what he thought about the flatted supertonic. He replied: 'I've never even heard of the flatted supertonic'. Funnily, the brass octave fanfares in the 1st P&C are on... you guessed it... the flatted supertonic.

Thanks so much for the organ transcription of the Walton! Do you know Robert Gower's recording of the Walton at Hereford Cathedral? (Priory 591) It's his own arrangement, slightly simplified from the McKie.

I'm flying the flag.

Here you are Jason, the superb Introduction and Passacaglia of Sir Walter Alcock written for the Three Choirs Festival of 1933 in Hereford where the composer gave the first performance at the young age of 72!
