I recently heard the piece "Paean" by Herbert Howells and I was blown away! I would love if someone could perform this work for contrebombarde concert hall.

Thank You,

Jonathan Taylor

I'll second that - it's one of my favourite pieces of Howells. The final resolution alway gives me goosebumps.
Ideally it would have to be on an English cathedral organ, though Metz would probably work as well until we have a complete one (I have been surprised at how "English" this can be made to sound, and have enjoyed playing Howells on it).
