I have been given the privilege and opportunity of playing and reviewing the sample set of the great Stahluth/Jann organ in Luxembourg. This is my first "demo" recording, to be used a "musical illustration" in my review, which I hope will be both enjoyable for listening and helpful in contemplating purchase of the set.
In 1955, Novello published a collection of "Fourteen Pieces arranged for Organ." The transcriptions were all done by Cedric S. Lang.
Craig Sellar Lang (13 May 1891 – 24 Nov 1971) was a New Zealand-born British organist, composer and music teacher.
Born in Hastings, New Zealand, he was known to his friends as "Robin", and was educated at Clifton College. He was a pupil of Walter Parratt and Charles Stanford at the Royal College of Music. He was an ARCM and received his Doctor of Music from The University of Durham
Lang returned to Clifton as assistant music master in 1921, and in 1929 was appointed Director of Music at Christ's Hospital school in Horsham, West Sussex.
This performance shows the ensemble of principals and mixtures of the Swell, Positif and Grand Orgue coupled together.
As with the Armely Schulze organ, you will need to use 16' tone on the manuals when using the mixtures. The make up and "breaks" of the mixture stops will force this, unless you want to wind up with a "false base" at times!
Reeds 16' & 8' from the Positif, as well as the Fagott 16' in the Pedal are added on the repeats.
You may notice an occasional "odd" note, as for instance the "presence" of the note "E" on the section ending chords of D major.
It's not a mistake! It's a just a characteristic of the mixtures! :-)
The score is attached below.
