Chorale Prelude - Craig A. Penfield | Hereford Cathedral (UK)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


This evening, @partitura and I were discussing technical things about our Hauptwerk virtual organ software. One interesting thing to me is that even though we are both organists (a very niche area already!) we still have very differing tastes in repertoire and types of organs. Whilst @partitura is playing with his Schnittger organ, I'm over here in Australia enjoying a Willis organ sampled at Hereford Cathedral, UK. The beauty of Hauptwerk is that we are able to play these instruments from all around the world which would otherwise be difficult to visit and obtain access to.

The Schnittger sound is vastly different from an English Willis sound. I prefer the warm and full bodied tones of the English organ, whereas a Schnittger organ is probably more transparent and clear which is suited to baroque compositions. The English cathedral sound is synonymous with colourful hymn playing and choir anthems, however this recording is much more subdued—it only features the single 8' Stopped Flute on the Swell (with octave coupler) and the 16' Pedal Bourdon.

I hope you enjoy this short little Chorale Prelude written by Craig Penfield. Craig is an American composer born on August 29, 1948. He was a student of Clarence
Watters who had been the first American student of Marcel Dupré! This piece is available for purchase in a collection from The Lorenz Corporation.

Yours truly,
@contrabourdon

How far are you away from where this organ is located @c0ff33a?

Quite a long drive

You call that long? That's an easy drive for Aussies. Melbourne is about a 3 hour drive from my place and many do day trips!

For our tiny island that’s considered a long drive lol.

Haha. Well I saved you the drive then :P
I actually know of someone who is going to Hereford to become their organ scholar!

Hey @contrabourdon, here is a little bit of BEER from @eii for you. Enjoy it!

This evening? To me it was very early afternoon... :-)
The beauty of Hauptwerk is indeed the possibility it gives to play sample sets of organs of vastly different styles and periods.
I do try to be a little bit more allround than 'that baroque playing guy'. Today I played with a new sample set of an American Aeolian Skinner. See my post, you might like it: https://steempeak.com/@partitura/rudolf-loew-erhalt-uns-herr-bei-deinem-wort
