    Bill,

    What a marvelous performance on an equally marvelous instrument.

    Here's some info on the Rochdale Town Hall and some history of the Binns Organ builder albeit this description is about the Albert Hall organ, the one at Rochdale is of identical specification.

    I'm eagerly wait for our humble and very talented Lars to put some Lemare transcriptions up on YouTube for our delight!!
    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.

    David,

    Thank you kindly for the accolades ... unfortunately, I don't have the organ resources at my disposal to play such splendid pieces - 9 ranks, no divisional pistons, and no acoustics either

    Right now I don't even have the church organ to play - some of the pouch rails were removed for repair after water leaked into the chest after a torrential rain storm in early July.

    I love the Lemare transcriptions, though.

    Lars - I'm so sorry to hear that, it sounds just awful. Please come to Australian one day, and I'll introduce you to my friend Robert Ampt ... he'll let you play his baby (see my avatar to figure out which organ I'm referring). David

    Lemares work on the Tannhauser and especially the Meistersinger are so satisfying - Its as if Wagner could had written them for organ.

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
