PostHeaderIconIs 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.

PostHeaderIconA 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!

PostHeaderIconAnother 30 days of Organ Music

Aug. 31, 2017

Back in March we played 30 days of Organ Music where the broadcast of each day of the month was either sprinkled or slathered with music of a particular theme. Well, for September, we're doing it again. Every day we're going to steer Organlive's programming toward a particular composer, country, or region, kind of like how The Organ Experience works, although these will be 24 hour blocks, and they might not be solid blocks. Each day was chosen thanks to a birthday or death anniversary on the calendar, or, possibly just complete random chance. Here's what you can expect to hear this month:
1 European Organs
2 German Baroque
3 Italian Music
4 Bach and Widor
5 Organs of the British Isles
6 New additions
7 Organbuilders that start with C
8 Nicolas de Grigny
9 Edwin H. Lemare
10 Henry Purcell
11 Alfred Hollins
12 Nordic organs and music
13 French Organs
14 English Romantic
15 Organs in California
16 Organs of Massachusetts
17 Stuff we haven’t played in a while
18 Just Baroque
19 Spanish and Portuguese music and organs
20 Organbuilders that start with F
21 Gustav Holst
22 All French
23 German and Dutch organs
24 Anthems and Hymns
25 Belgians
26 Organbuilders that start with S
27 American Music
28 Organs of Canada
29 19th century music
30 Charles Villiers Stanford
Anytime we can't make a category work, we'll fall back to our usual weekly schedule, and of course, you'll be welcome to request anything you want from our library. We'll post each day on our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed to update you with the theme of the day.
