From the pen of the Producer
The original idea behind these videos was to supply them on DVD to Organ Clubs who could, for a very small purchase price, screen them on Members Nights or the Annual Committee Meeting night when no major organist wants to hang around and tailor his/her programme to what remains of the playing time that night. For the price I had in mind it would have also been a huge saving to the Club. As more and more Clubs are investing in big screen CCT presentation, it seemed to be a good idea…but I never got around to marketing it, because I wanted to retain as much control over them in the light of how easy it is for illegal copies to be made. Ask any organist their views on that subject!
You may be wondering why some of the big names organists are not included. The short answer is that YOU-TUBE limit each video to approx 10 mins, and as much as I would love to include many others I would be hard pressed to condense their illustrious organ world offerings to anything less than an hour each.
Having said this, I hope that this website will allow any follow-up to the videos listed in the Index and allow enthusiasts give their comments in the GUESTBOOK (see Menu).
