Hereford Cathedral Easter Recital

PostMon Apr 19, 2021 3:01 am

A friend recently sent me a link to Peter Dyke’s Easter Recital on the Father Willis in Hereford Cathedral.

Programme, with approximate start times:
00:30 SUSATO Mohrentanz
03:05 WALTON Coronation March: Orb and Sceptre
12:00 GRIEG Morning
18:15 THALBEN-BALL Vreuchten (This joyful Eastertide)
19:15 SMYTH Erschienen ist der herrlich' Tag
21:25 BACH Christ lag in Todesbanden
24:20 HANDEL Organ Concerto in F, 2nd movement ("The Cuckoo and the Nightingale")
29:45 SAINT-SAËNS Fantaisie in E flat
37:20 DEARNLEY Dominus regit me
41:05 BRAHMS Herzlich tut mich verlangen
43:50 WIDOR Toccata (Symphony no 5)

Well worth watching, and strangely familiar to those of us who play Lavender Audio’s excellent Hereford Cathedral sample set.

Yes, indeed Thanks for sharing. One of those fantastic, timeless organs.

This YouTube video really shows it off. As well the organist definitely knows his instrument demonstrating very artful registrations.
