    Love the icon propped up against the organ, very resourceful - not.

    Great links - thanks
    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.

    Voluntary in Cmin by John Watts

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/NPaud...64&Code=2&No=7

    Sounding to me like a larger organ than it actually is

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsear...c_index=D01864

    One from the "Village Organist" Vol3 a minuet by Felix Alexandre Guilmant

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/NPaud...55&Code=2&No=2

    On this organ

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsear...c_index=N06455

    Seems to be a small number of stops for a 3 manual instrument.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Sorry for the slight delay in picking up this thread again, 3 more for your delectation,

    Firstly a piece by Haydn

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/NPaud...49&Code=2&No=3

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsear...c_index=N13349


    Next a composer I have not heard before, E.T. Chipp

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/NPaud...77&Code=2&No=3

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsear...c_index=C00877

    Finally another of John Stanley's Op 2 concertos, the title here says No 1, but I have it on the Baroque Music library Cd as No 4.

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/NPaud...00&Code=2&No=1

    http://www.npor.org.uk/cgi-bin/Rsear...c_index=N06500

    I did mention the BM CD on the first post in this thread, wondering if anybody has actually downloaded the CD, I've hunted a few places for the scores, not found any yet. Do any of you have access to a string orchestra to try them with?
    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks agaion. Enjoyed. The composition by Chipp surely reminds me of the Grand Choeur Dialogue-Gignot
