Sample Set Submissions

Composer: Collin, Charles-Augustin
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: William Hill English Organ Model
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Romantic
Description:
These pieces that are being uploaded today are intended to be the "final" uploads in my very soon to be released review of the new SP Hill organ.

It is my intent to demonstrate every stop, so, these relatively small uploads are designed to showcase specifics stops/sounds that have otherwise not be covered in my recordings of the organ.

Charles-Augustin Collin (16 April 1865 — 30 May 1938) was organist of Notre-Dame de Rennes, and the son of organist-composer Charles-René Collin (1827–1911), organist of Saint-Brieuc, Brittany.

"Mélodie" was composed in 1918, and published by Schott in 1922.

This recording is intended to show the very unique stop, the Vox Angelica 8' of the Swell organ, a stop that is "limited" in its use, but when used in the "correct way" with the right piece, makes for an effective "violin solo", the ideal sound for this piece.

Originally, I had intended to make all of my recordings on the Hill to be by English composers, but I just couldn't find the right English piece to display this stop.

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Notre-Dame de Rennes.

With any luck, my sample set spotlight should be completed by tomorrow or the day after at the latest. I hope you will check it out!
