Royal College of Organists: The Organ Podcast

PostSat Feb 10, 2024 5:53 am

I recently received this….

“I am writing to let you know about a fantastic new podcast that the RCO has launched, and to ask for your help in spreading the word.

Dedicated to the world of the organ, organists and organ music, The Organ Podcast will be published fortnightly to inform and entertain organists ‘of every age and stage’, as well as organ enthusiasts and those who are simply curious and want to know more about our instrument and music.

Episodes will feature interviews with leading UK and international organists, visit historic or little-known organs of interest, catch-up with organ rebuilds and restorations, and encounter a diverse mix of individual organ-related activities, news, discussions and initiatives from around the world. Our presenter Mark O’Brien is both an organist and an award-winning former BBC radio and tv producer. In the first episode you can hear him exploring the restoration of Manchester Town Hall’s 1877 Cavaillé-Coll organ; joining Tom Bell as he completes a new recording of Olivier Messiaen’s Livre du Saint Sacrement from Blackburn Cathedral; and meeting Margaret Phillips at her remarkable English Organ School & Museum.

The Organ Podcast is available free of charge from Apple, Spotify, Google, Amazon and all popular podcast directories. It is also available to hear to via the College’s YouTube page, or simply visit to find links to all these outlets and more.

I do hope you can find some time to listen, and perhaps even to subscribe and offer up a review (five stars, we hope!) on Apple or Spotify if that is where you get your podcasts. All would help greatly. It would also be great if you could share this news with your association members, and indeed anyone else you think might be interested.

With thanks,
Jess Stanojevic
Marketing Officer, RCO
