W. Stanley Vann (1910-2010) was an extrememly distinguished British organist and composer, most remembered for his tenure as Organist and Master of the Music at Peterborough Cathedral (1953-1977).

Rather than try to give a "squeezed-in" biography, I'll give this link to a website created by his son, which gives full details, recordings, lists of works, etc.

Vann was a distinctive and distinguished composer, and his works have a "certain sound" to them. His old recordings, made with the choir of Peterborough, were an ENORMOUS influence on me. A former assistant from the pre-Peterborough days told me, "Stanley could get as much, if not more, from 'ordinary boys', as Willcocks could get from 'Kings-type boys', meaning of course King's College, Cambridge.

This brief "Paean" shows a few of his harmonic touches and comes from the book that I've done a few other things from - "Paegant for Pipes", publisheb by Mayhew.

I found that I still had this recording on my desk top, so since it DOES use the Tuber, I figured I'd better upload it... ;-)
