I think I sat there on that bench more than a few times. I still have a Casavant key on my key ring! Well done, David!

David, what a delightful article!! It takes me back to Bristol days and I shall always be grateful for you passing on the job at Henbury to me although, sadly, I never managed to full your shoes musically (socially had a great time!). The fact that the Bach B minor is merely one of many exquisite pieces in your repertoire and probably the peak of my own playing ( I ended up doing organ recital at Bristol in my 3rd year ..but never reached your dizzy heights). Have been living in Stockholm for many years now, with a short burst of California for 6 years. You look just the same in this Picture (apart from a lighter shade of hair). Are you on FB? I continue to be in awe of your talent! Sweden has some wonderful instruments (although I hardly play the organ these days) ...if ever you and your wife are over this way. (By the way, would that be Elspeth from Bristol days?). Would love to hear more from you. All the best, Sue x

What a lovely article! Every detail of it was relished! I am a small- time church organist in HVGB, playing for two services each Sunday - bilingual 11am, and Inuttut at 4pm. so have to juggle text liturgy in second language with the music, plus 19thcent. hand written MSS. We have an old oak pump organ, and a small electronic one - both lovely to play. Thanks for the coverage.
