    Organ Music Adventures

    Long-time readers of this site may remember in years past I used to post rather frequently with audio clips of rare/new/privately recorded music for organ..

    In recent years I have simply not made the time to do so as much - life has at times been far more complicated that it should have been, and I have not set aside time to do some of the things I love.

    Hopefully, that is changing!

    I've long wanted to do a video presentation featuring similar material to what I used to post, hopefully to reach a larger audience. To that end, I've started a YouTube broadcast - at first probably only once a month, but hopefully more frequently if I make the time. It will feature my favorite rare "finds", many of which are not commercially recorded or released. I'm also endeavoring to give links to scores and recordings whenever available.

    I hope you will have a look and listen - I welcome your comments and feedback...

    Left comments on your youtube page. Enjoyed and found 2 I really cared for: Fanfare by Ashford which you played excellently and Communion by Rozan.. Others not to my normal tonality/chordal preferences.Old time fuddy type here. more into earlier periods of music.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    Hi Bill,

    Thanks for listening and commenting... I admit my tastes in music run to the more modern (but, I tried not to share the really weird stuff this time!)

    Best,

    Jonathan,

    So glad to see this being done ... I myself frequently introduce 'unknowns' as part of my literature presented as Preludes and Postludes in my parish.
    To learn what these female composers have contributed to our craft is wonderful project, and I thank you for taking the time to produce these for us.

    Enjoyed them all ... I have a liking to the more contemporary works as well, but also enjoy the great masters of all time equally.

    Lars

    Thanks, Lars...

    New episodes won't necessarily all be about female composers - the broad topic is neglected composers. Certainly, ladies will be prominently featured, as they are quite squarely in the neglected category, however. Also, the program will tend toward romantic/modern works, as those are the ones most under-represented these days.

    My best,
