wles, Callingham, Jones, King, Pilliner, Ramell and Mrs Harper)gathered round the console to learn from Harry Bramma, our President, how to successfully avoid using prepared pistons to change registrations to great effect.

Harry believes that too many organists rely wholly on pistons for registrations, and feels that the result can be less musical than if timbres are selected by hand.
Harry advised using the tuba in the tenor register when soloing out a hymn melody.

Dr Harry Bramma

Harry is our most distinguished President, formerly Organist of Southwark Cathedral, and Director of the RSCM. He is a noted demonstrator of organs and encourager of the SSLSO. Harry played the most appropriate Bach chorale prelude for the Lent season "O Mensch, bewein dein Sünde gross" BWV622(8.30 mins). It is characterized by its glorious melodic line, which is written in a similar style to that heard in the Buxtehude Prelude. Chromatic harmonies provide a subtle ending. He precedes the prelude with a performance of the chorale on which it is based.
Harry spoke about his feelings and admiration for JS Bach and this can be heard by clicking the link.

Harry Bramma- 75th birthday celebration

On Friday 11 November a wonderful celebration was held at All Saints Margaret Street to mark the 75th birthday of Dr Harry Bramma, who had been Director of Music there. His successor, Paul Brough, had the great idea of recording a CD of Harry's compositions to be launched on his birthday (Priory Records CD1060), and during the evening the choir sang several items from the CD, interspersed with witty and grateful tributes on his musical career from Lindsay Gray, Harry's successor as Director of the RSCM, and the Very Revd Nicholas Frayling, Dean of Chichester and a long-standing holiday companion of Harry.
SSLSO gave Harry a £75 Nicolas wine voucher to mark the occasion, which he has graciously acknowledged.
