    Stanley's Organ concerto No.4 op10

    Hi everyone,

    I like very much this concerto in Cminor and I would like to give it a try but I cannot find a free score so far.
    I need the full score, ie organ & orchestra.
    There is an old used copy in Sheetmusic wharehouse for $15 but... you know me, I don't want to pay anymore for music written in 1700's....

    IMSLP and WIMA and PleiJeu and Freescores and other friendly sites usually have the organ volutaries , but no concertos.
    Wima only offers concerto No.6

    Any help ?

    Best

    You mean this one.



    Personally I prefer the Opus 2 concertos (probably because I've heard more of them)
    Cheers MIKE.

    Hi Mike,

    YES, this is the one I got ! Gifford plays extremely super for my humble taste and Sinfonia is delivering a great sound.
    Maybe Hexam Abbey's environment gives a strong motivation for the players ?
    The organ is great too.
    I like the opus 10 and opus 2 as well. But this Cminor No.4 reminds me of Bach a bit..... :-) and the Andante is one of the best Stanley wrote IMHO.
    But any luck on the score ?
