    Restored Harrison and Harrison at Royal Festival hall

    Listening to this on BBC radio3, probably be available for a few days.

    Opening with Gigout Grand Choer, followed by BWV 582 - Passacaglia & Fugue

    The Gigout is an arrangement for organ and brass ensemble, not impressed, much prefer the Wimborne organ recording; in this arrangement the brass ensemble spoilt it for me not helped by the slight discontinuity in the changeovers from brass to organ and back; maybe I'm to familiar with the recorded version.

    The Passacaglia I thought was a little quicker than I'm used to and a bit harsh and heavy in places.

    I'm skipping the rest of the concert.

    Wondering if this will become available as a Podcast that we can download from across the pond ...

    I checked the BBC Radio3 and did not see this particular program in its listing. Maybe it is blocked for outside the UK.

    Haven't (yet) listened to the Organ Gala referred to, but the online review is far from complimentary.

    Kh, this is the link:

    www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/b03y3fvd

    Hope you can access it!

    It's in a series of programmes from Royal Festival Hall, listed as Radio 3 live in Concert, 19,30 Tuesday 18th March, Live at the South Bank Centre

    This link maybe worth trying, says 6 days left to listen

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03y3fvd

    Reading the small print it looks like radio is OK outside UK but not TV

    Just for comparison, the opening 58 seconds of the Gigout from the Wimborne organ recording.

    gigoutex58916.mp3

    The Wimborne organ record is on these two links, first one USA second one UK

    http://www.griffinrecords.co.uk/item.asp?prodid=815

    Also on Amazon.co.UK as CD or MP3 download (maybe on amazon.com as well, you can get samples of each track on the MP3 page)
