Re: St.Mary"s Church - Bampton - 7 / 9 / 13

... another great review Keith... and I see you've invented a new punctuation mark! :wink:

Sorry I couldn't make it, but I am up to my eyes in organising this http://www.cslewisjubileefestival.org/index.html at the moment.

Be well and we'll met again soon.

Re: Gedling - 24 / 5 /2013

It was a pleasure to meet both you and Ethan, Roger. Ethan's response to my question, "So do you have ONE favourite Gordon piece, Ethan?" "No; they're ALL my favourites!" will remain with me for a long, long time. :D ... and Ethan's souvenir CD is even now winging it's way to Nor...

Spiro

Thanks to a recommendation from a member of one of the bands for whom I regularly 'drive the desk' I've just discovered Spiro. If you're into the whole acoustic/folk/instrumental genre you might like them too...

Re: A Hello & a possible Request

I seem to recall that at one time you wrote and recorded some library music Gordon... would those two pieces be in that category? Reason I ask is that much TV/radio music used as 'beds' during that period would have been from library discs. Main reason is that library music is often issued and charg...

Re: St. Michael's Church - Bishops Itchington - 13/4/13

An excellent review as ever, m'Lord... Maybe that sounds immodest from the guy who was ultimately responsible for getting the melodies into the assembled lug'oles, but working with musicians of this calibre really does make my job easy. When first listening to the Ravens and Lullabies CDs it was Pau...

Re: Visionary/Perilous Journey/Fear of the Dark

Hi Andrew and welcome! :) Probably your best bet will be to go second-hand. Both vinyl and CD copies of these classic albums come up regularly on Amazon and EBay. On Amazon, sellers are required to give an assessment of condition and for both outlets the feedback score of sellers gives an indication...
