    Again the Trumpet Voluntary by John Stanley, this time played by Martin Schröder (trumpet) and Hans-André Stamm (organ)



    Here the original, full version played by Alan John Phillips on the organ:



    Normally only the second movement is played, with several repetitions. Honestly, I didn't know that before I occupied myself more with the piece in order to write the arrangement for our wedding and took the sheets from the imslp database. My arrangement (for trumpet, trombone and organ) became at last something like a rondo. It will be played while my grandfather is leading me into the church.

    Franz Schmidt: Symphony No. 1 in E Major
    Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Paavo Järvi

    This is really a wonderful symphony. There's just so much great music in the world!

    In this symphony, I find the horn writing especially felicitous, among the other examples of extraordinarily confident orchestration and inspired, highly memorable melodic ideas and gestures.

    Britten chose to go with Shakespeare as his librettist for this. Suitably magical music for the play.

    Suk, Asrael (Symphony No 2) - Czech PO, Václav Talich.

    I'd forgotten how intense this performance/recording is. Talich in charge of his Czech orchestra can be special at anytime but this disc is another level above that already high threshold for me.
    The remastered 1952 mono sound is first rate, after a couple of minutes I'd be surprised if after being sucked in by the performance anyone notices the sound quality.

    Louis Spohr: Die letzten Dinge
    Sally Matthews, Katharine Goeldner, Jeremy Ovenden, Andrew Foster-Williams
    Salzburger Bachchor, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg, Ivor Bolton

    This is a really great oratorio! It's a positive, affirming work, focusing on grace, forgiveness, and transformation, rather than judgment and wrath.

    After a concentrated spell of listening to a lot of Donizetti operas, I've moved to something rather differnt in the consort music of Dowland and Byrd. Though my Donizetti listening involved the three Tudor operas, the sound world here is completely different.

    Michael Chance provided vocals on Disc 1 and Elizabeth Liddle plays viol on Disc 2.
