It would be easier to make a list of international organists who did not play it than those who did. he present incumbent is following their lead with marvellous results. In "magic" which is a much better technical recording than the recent = second   I would say, rather, that that Wanamaker store organ is a "one of a kind" and not the pinnacle of anything. In Britain, St Paul's London organ, similarly, cannot be pasted into a general framework of comparison with other large cathedral organs as it is unique.   Ross

Can anyone = tell of these organs' stories? _____-   Peter, wouldn't it be simplest just to ask John Bishop?   As for music, I recently purchased several volumes of the Caleb Semper voluntaries for organs. Yes, I KNOW it's old fashioned and out of date = and formulaic and not "real" music and all that stuff. But I'm an amateur organist, and I can open those books and sightread well enough to make something pleasing to the ear, and many of them would certainly make appropriate short pieces when you need just a bit of music.......or insert some repeats and you could have short preludes, background, whatever.   Hey, I enjoy hearing the "standard literature" but I can't play it. = Perhaps someday it will be a high enough priority that I learn to do some of it, = but for now, this is very nice.   Dennis Steckley Lover of Cats, Pipe Organs & 1940-65 Sewing Machines
