A noble Hill organ, twice orphaned, finds a new home!

The proud organ, built by William Hill for St. Paul's Church-Burton-on-Trent almost 150 years a...

Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: William Hill English Organ Model
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Baroque
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.

This nice piece comes from a collection of anonymous English voluntaries, all dating from the 18th century.

It showcases the Trumpet 8' of the Great as the main solo, and the Clarinet 8' of the Choir, doing duty as a "Cremona". The bass part during the solos is played on the Swell Open Diapason 8' and Gemshorn 4', and the opening prelude is played on the Great Open Diapason Small 8'.

You'll notice that the trumpet is quite slow in speech, and many of the trills have more "flutter" than articulation, but there is a certain charm about the sound. The Clarinet is essentially as big as the Trumpet, but the contrast is effective enough.

The score is attached below. This work is the seventh in the collection and begins on page 32.

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!
