Re: New Free app for the Ipad

Brian, You have had plenty of Demos of different sounds you can get from these Apps. Some remind me of the sounds you got from those Moog Synthesizers and songs like 'Popcorn', which came out in 1969. Maybe these Apps are useful for composing pieces of music rather than just 'playing' something? If ...

Re: Away in a Manger

Hi Ken, Lovely arrangement. Some very interesting chord structures in that. Didn't recognise the end bit. Was that part of this carol? We went on a train trip to Lincoln last Saturday and visited the Cathedral. They had a children's choir singing, and at one point the organist played Away in a Mange...

Re: Mary's Little Boy Child

Brian,

Enjoyed that. Liked the arrangement. Some really interesting harmonies (chords) that really transform this piece.

Re: The Shepherds Farewell

Hi Don,

Lovely piece of music. Here is an instrumental version with all the vocal parts played together. And it shows the music score for this too.

Re: Christmas on YouTube

We heard The Roches on Radio 2 many years ago, and were so enthralled by this American Folk Group that we rushed out to buy their CD. Only to find it was not available in Britain! So had to order a copy direct from America.

Here they are singing Good King Wenceslas.

Hi Don, Enjoyed that piece. Now, Bronwyn and I need you to come up to Weston in August 2018 and play that piece for us, as it is our 50th Wedding Anniversary then. The day we were married was very windy, and we have pictures of Bronwyn's veil going vertically up into the air. In the end, for the pho...

Re: Classical pieces on YouTube

When I was at University up in Scotland (Dundee) I shared a flat with a Norwegian lad (that goes back a bit!) and he was really keen on Grieg (well, he would be, wouldn't he?). He had this 'vinyl' of Grieg's Piano Concerto which he loved to play, and being a pianist I was hooked. Looking back at it,...

Re: Joy to the World

Hi Ken, With a title like that, this is a good example of a piece that could never have been composed or played in a minor key. According to Wikipedia, in Western music, a minor chord "sounds darker than a major chord". So looking at it the other way, a major chord "sounds lighter tha...

As we have a 'Classical' section now, I reckon we need somewhere to post any YouTube 'classical' clips that we find really inspiring.

Accompanied by their music teacher on piano. They had an amazing sound and I recorded the evening on my 'reel to re...

Re: A Trumpeter's Lullaby

Hi Charles,

Loved that combination of Trumpet and Horn. Tell me, as we can hear Trumpet (on the Upper?) and Horn and harmonies (on
the Lower?) I presume that you do not actually have three hands, but did a 'double recording'? Multi-tracked it is the expression, I think.

Re: Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring

Don,

Love this piece. I just wonder at how you can play what is a very full 'backing part' to this piece on the organ, and also have a choir singling along with you as you play .. when you only have two hands. Have you got three?

Re: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

Melancholy chords indeed! Something from the middle ages? Wikipedia says: It is one of the oldest extant carols, dated to the 16th century or earlier. The earliest known printed edition of the carol is in a broadsheet dated 1760. The traditional English melody is in the minor mode. The transitive us...

Re: Jingle Bell Rock

Val,

It's nice to hear an organ played as an organ should be played. Every note that you hear from the Upper, Lower and Pedals is you playing 'live'. Your Registration changes are perfect.

Hi Don, I can't get over how realistic your organ sounds. Really could be sitting in your church listening to you playing and the choir singing. Most 'church organists' would take a dim view of the organ sounds from an 'electronic' source. Having manufactured and repaired 'pipes' for real organs, an...

Re: Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer

Another good Christmas number. And yes, there is a movie about Rudolf. In fact, there are two, one made in 1964 and one made in 1998. I'll go with the 1998 one as they said this about the 1964 one: "The reason I like this version better is the story, characters, songs, and the fact that his par...
