    For anyone who likes Baroque organ works on period intruments you may like the 5 CD set by Jennifer Bate "English organ anthology" it actually covers just into the 1800s with works by Samuel Wesley and William Russell, but by far the majority is earlier, composers include Handel and John Stanley but also Henry Heron, Thomas Roseingrave, Charles Burney, William Walond, Maurice Greene, Thomas Sanders Dupuis, John Travers, John Reading John Keeble, William Boyce, William Croft, Simon Stubley and James Hook.

    I will be featuring those that I can find on Youtube from time to time in the Baroque on Youtube topic.

    The set is on Amazon UK, maybe elsewhere also

    Good point.
    I confess, I'd forgotten about Monteverdi.

    Thank you.
    Who would you say is your 'favourite' English composer for the organ, or don't you really have one?

    Difficult question, there are quite a few to choose between, not made any easier by trying to find enough works by the less well known ones. Also for any composer there are some works I like, others which I like less, for example I much prefer the John Stanley organ &/or Harpsichord concerti to those by Handel, though I can't recall having heard any Handel concerti on Harpsichord.

    You may have noticed from my postings on the Baroque Youtube topic that I tend to look for the lesser known composers and works, sometimes wonder if I really know what I'm looking for! I do know I'm not happy listening to the radio just regurgitating the same old done to death works; example if I never hear Beethovens 9th again it'll still be too soon.

    I hope you will indulge me in one last Telemann's reccomend lion that I absentmindedly left off my list yesterday. His Fantasias for solo flutecare also essential listening.

    I must admit I find his sacred music extremely difficult to navigate. I've heard a few of his passions and cantatas and oratorios and enjoyed them all but I am one of those 'Telemann people's.
    This is a good CD: https://www.brilliantclassics.com/ar...bass-cantatas/
    Thanks for this. I had a listen to one of the Paris Quartets, the fifth. It's charming and it seems to be well made. It's poised and radiant. Thanks for the nudge to make me listen.

    I'm not very familiar with this type of baroque music, but based on what little I've heard, I can well believe that Telemann was an important contributor.

    Discovered this yesterday:

    I think it's the best piece of Telemann church music I've heard so far.

    Happy Christmas, TC folk.

    I just found this Christmas baroque selection on YouTube just now and am enjoying it very much.

    G. F. HANDEL: Dixit Dominus (1707)

    F. Palmer & M. Marshall sopranos
    C. Brett & J. A. Messana counter-tenors
    R. Morton & A. Thompson tenors
    D. Wilson-Johnson bass
    Monteverdi Choir & Orchestra
    J. E. Gardiner [Erato ’78]
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93fV...1y6kYeNAuQp_Kg

    The spirited and characterful nature of the music making carries the day here, as Gardiner’s choir and orchestra sing/play with disciplined but unfussy exuberance and infectious conviction throughout. The performance is historically informed but not historically obsessed or constrained, following period practice to a practical extent without being tied down by pretentions of authenticity … although I’m sure that many listeners would have preferred mezzo-sopranos or contraltos to counter-tenors in the alto roles. I flirt with other recordings that come my way, but I always end up returning home to this one.

    This might have been the Monteverdi Orchestra’s last hurrah on record, or close to it, as the orchestra was dissolved in order to make way for the establishment of the period-instrument-playing English Baroque Soloists the same year.

    If you’re referring to my post (Gardiner’s Dixit Dominus), try Classical M:

    http://www.classicalm.com/en/composi...iest--Gardiner

    Classical M is a vendor, but it provides full-length clips (320 Kbps MP3 streams, no less) ... very nice.

    Here's a very nice short video about Monteverdi & The Sixteen.



    Happy Boxing Day.
