Organ-info link is broken, which is too bad, I am curious: looks like an unusual compass for one thing.

THe Philadelphia Orchestra had a hissy-fit about the organ and it was removed. During the 1990s it was placed in the Lenape Valley Presbyterian Church, New Britiain, Pa. by Brantley Duddy.

Seems like he got caught up in some sort of down hill race. fugue tempo started out great but right before the credenza he was pushing the tempo like he could not wait to get done!

Lot's of distortion on this track. Also the tempo seems unusually fast.

I don't believe this is John Stanley's "Trumpet Voluntary", eh?

"The Prince of Denmark's March," commonly but erroneously called "Trumpet Voluntary," was written by Jeremiah Clarke.

Rather silly and theatrical.

By: Filea on May, 02 2013

In complete agreement with Brian!

By: jfk1961 on Aug, 15 2013

It's the only piece I play before I segway into the "Bridal Chorus." Brides & Grooms love it!

Waaaaay too fast! Unfortunately too much distortion in this recording.

The Academy was charging by the minute??

By: jfk1961 on Feb, 19 2012

Whoa! Where's the fire?

By: nigh on Sep, 15 2014

I am willing to grant Whitehead may have been trying to compensate for the acoustics with a faster tempo.
