Music that works

Here is a list of pieces that work well on the organs in St Mary’s and All Saints. They have all been recorded on the organ in All Saints, Lullington and are ‘clips’ only to give you some ideas. They were recorded (in a bit of a hurry) before the organ was covered for the works to the west window started, so in addition to the normal blower and action noise you also have a few of the Director if Music’s ‘smudges’. We hope that they help you.

One more step along the world I go
Make me a channel of your peace
All things bright & beautiful
