Is it Christmas yet?
Nov. 10, 2017
Just like every year, we're getting questions from the impatient ones who want us to start our Christmas broadcast and to start including the hidden part of our library that only comes out this time of year. That usually happens sround December 1st. Then you'll begin hearing seasonal works in the regular Organlive broadcast. We start slow, but increase the amount as we get closer to the end of the month. Those tracks will be available to request then, as well. Keep watching here for more information!
Well, once again, for those who can't get enough, Christmas Organlive is back. That's where we play only the Christmas and Advent portions of our library. Just like Organlive, it's free and easy to tune in. Just visit the xmas.organlive.com.
A big celebration on Monday!
Oct. 1, 2017
October 2 marks the 100th birthday of organist and composer Francis Jackson. He started as a chorister at York Minster under Edward Bairstow, and eventually became organist and music director of York Minster from 1946 to 1982. He toured the world as a concert organist and made many recordings of organ and choral music. We'll be celebrating with his compositions, his recordings, and music from York Minster throughout the day. Be sure to tune in and join the celebration!
