  • A musical tour of Westminster Abbey

    Well here's a hair raising, toe curling video - a musical tour of Westminster Abbey, including, count 'em, three organs and the graves of Chaucer and Handel.

    Former instruments (RIP): Allen ADC 420; Conn Minuet 542

    What about Purcell?

    Poor Mr. O'Donnell, the cameraman should have let him know when they changed cameras so he could continue to talk to the active camera.

      Lip reading is so hard when they're pointing away from you! ;-) I'm learning that as I get older and turn the TV up.

    Can anyone identify the composer and title of the opening/closing piece??

      No, it starts out sounding like the Felix Mendelssohn Wedding March from A Midsummer Night's Dream. However, that's not the piece. They never list it, so I guess we'll never know unless someone here has played it.

      What was the title of the Handel piece?

      Never mind, I figured it out. It's "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba."
