Some of the recordings were made on Czech organs and others were recorded on famous Dutch instruments, such as the Bavokerk in Haarlem and the Michaeliskerk in Zwolle. I thought some of the Czech Reiger-Kloss instruments from the middle of the twentieth century sounded a little screechy. I also have a very fine recording of Mr. Ropek playing the then new Mander at St. Giles, Cripplegate in London. For many years Jiri Ropek used to come and give an annual recital at St. John's Church in Taunton, the town where I grew up, so I got to meet him several times.   John Speller

Could you perhaps tell us the program that Fred played and maybe some of your impressions of the concert.
