    Early English Organ Music on Amazon

    Not sure if the offer applies outside UK, but Vol1 and Vol2 of the above are available as MP3 downloads for £10 (normally £7.49 each)

    Some items and composers I've not come across before, plus some I have heard of. Quite a few from "The Mulliner book", & "The Dancing Master", plus William Croft, William Walond, John Blow, Christopher Gibbons, William Boyce, Purcell, Giles Farnaby, John Blitheman (Te Deum), John Redford, Thomas Tallis, John Bull, Robert Johnson, Orlando Gibbons, William Byrd, John Stanley, John Nares, & Samuel Wesley. Also a number of A N Onymouse

    Organist John Payne. I've not listened to all of it yet, but there is some great music there.

    Short samples on the Amazon MP3 pages

    I'm now listening to Vol1, mostly short tracks - 34 of 'em. 1.04.27 duration.

    Had to upgrade windows Media player cos the earlier version I had on one PC did not display composer.

    Some lovely tracks so far!
    Cheers MIKE.

    Actually learnt something as well, one work is "Lucis Creator Optime" also listed as "O Lux with a meane"

    MEANE; English term originally referring to the middle part of a three-voice polyphonic texture. In the late 16th century and the 17th it was sometimes used synonymously with altus or countertenor.
    Cheers MIKE.
