    Terrific! Well spotted, Bill!


    PS was the above link a deliberate joke? Hilarious! At first glance I thought they'd mis-spelt "diary"

    Hmmm ... not sure about that. Piano and organ is not a pleasant combination in my opinion.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    I loved their version of Faure's Apres un Reve. I believe the piano/harmonium duo was very popular in the 19th century (when the harmonium was cutting-edge technology!), and was actually used in the original version of this well-known piece ...

    It also features in the excellent film "Topsy Turvey" which tells the story of how Gilbert and Sullivan came to write The Mikado. At one point in the film Sullivan's song "The Lost Chord" is performed with piano/harmonium accompaniment.
