Organists Review February 2007

2007 February

£2.99

Peter Bassett concludes his series on how to learn the organ as an adult and John Norman explains about the internal workings of the organ. Shirley Ratcliffe talks to Edward Higginbottom about his life at New College, Oxford, and Paul Hale looks at the new instruments installed at Arundel and Cheltenham Ladies’s College. As Nigel Allcoat’s excellent improvisation lessons are now ended, we are very pleased to include the first article from John Wells about articulation and accents in organ music.

 

Description

This issue looks at the life and music of Jean Langlais. Colin Walsh has written an excellent ‘You can play this’ feature and he also writes about his lessons with Langlais.

Peter Bassett concludes his series on how to learn the organ as an adult and John Norman explains about the internal workings of the organ. Shirley Ratcliffe talks to Edward Higginbottom about his life at New College, Oxford, and Paul Hale looks at the new instruments installed at Arundel and Cheltenham Ladies’s College. As Nigel Allcoat’s excellent improvisation lessons are now ended, we are very pleased to include the first article from John Wells about articulation and accents in organ music.

Returning to Langlais, Marjorie Bruce looks at the Man in his Music and Kathleen Thomerson investigates the connection between folklore and his work.

The centre spread is the organ of Ste Clotilde – an instrument with a chequered history – and this issue’s anthem is Prayer Jor Peace by Alan Bullard.
