Looking for Sample Sets

Uploaded by: Erzahler (09/04/20)
Composer: Wadely, Frederick William
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Salisbury Cathedral Father Willis
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Romantic
Frederick William Wadely OBE FRCO (1882 - 1970) was born in Kidderminster in 1882, and was trained at the Royal College of Music and was then organ scholar at Selwyn College, Cambridge (1900 – 1903) then organist of St. Andrew’s Church, Uxbridge (1903-1904), organist of Malvern Priory (1904 - 1910) and finally organist of Carlisle Cathedral (1910 - 1960).

This is the only other non-vocal section of the Pageant music so I thought it was worth rounding out the Wadely music with it. The Pageant with the same music was again presented in 1951. There was another pageant in 1977 but this time with the music selected by the next organist of Carlisle Cathedral Andrew Seivewright. The composers presented were Walton,Tallis, Kodály, Poulenc, Berlioz, Boyce, Strauss, Alford.

We might find hints in his music of Edward Elgar and it is interesting to note that Wadely married Ethel Muriel Stokes, who was a school friend of Elgar's daughter Carice. F.W. Wadely's father, William Edward Wadely, received Organ lessons at Worcester Cathedral from E. Spray, from whom Elgar received organ lessons at about the same time. No wonder Dr Wadely is sometimes called 'The Elgar of the North'!)
