    Voluntaries on youtube

    I've been having a browse on "the toob" for some less frequently heard works. Herewith a selection of 5 by various English composers from the sixteen and seventeen hundreds.

    John Stanley

    William Boyce

    Thank you! Four excellent pieces and performances. Loved it. I must say, though, that I am somewhat irked by those who go to the trouble of posting videosand giving some information on the composer and music and fail to identify the orgnist or the organ.

    About three years ago I found and purchased in a store about 30 miles from where I live in Massachusetts a 5 CD boxed set titled English Organ Anthology from Stanley to Wesley played by Jennifer Bate on a variety of period organs on various parts of England from which I have much enjoyment. I have found many unusual items here. The shop specialises in cut out and discontinued NEW recordings, mostly classical but some Jazz and a few others. They do have a web site.

    Rob, I a have a couple CDs like that, aka without any information about the organ and location. Recording date ect.
    Like this : JSBach, Toccata & Fugue in Dm Dorian BWV538, Otto Winter, Silbermann Organ or Organ. There are many Silbermanns out there, which witch is which ?!

    I have that Jennifer Bate CD, Glorious! I did browse through that to identify composers that I then fed into Youtube, is that cheating?
    Cheers MIKE.

    Actually it is a bit comical history with these "Otto Winter" recordings. The name "Otto Winter" is purely fictional, invented by a German record company to appeal better to German cd buyers. The organist was really Miklós Spányi, a Hungary-born Finnish organist. He had recorded Bach's works on a Hungarian organ that had been built in the style of a German baroque organ. The Hungarian recording company Hungaroton had sold the recordings to this German company, that changed the organist's name and the organ became a Silbermann. The organist told this history in a Finnish organ magazine. More info about the organist: http://miklosspanyi.de/

    Hi FV !!

    Once more you're full of invaluable info :-)
    Helluva story !
    The point is that I got some CDs from Miklos Spanyi, with his name and info printed on !
    Now I'll have to change the name on the German ones.......

    Thanks for the link

    I did ... and these are wonderful. I've grown to have much more appreciation for the English (UK) built pipe organs since having heard a number of them last summer. They are so delightful to hear ... and in the case of Wimborne Minster, very delightful to play as well.

    One of Stanley's lesser known voluntaries, with organ and baroque trumpet, I love the sound of this early trumpet.

    Panos, Thank you for posting this delightful performance. As much as I love the organ the Virginal is a refreshing alternate. Byrd's music is always a delight especially when played that well and that instrument is gorgeous both to hear and see.
