Our Wales partner retailer, Aspire Classical Organs is having a great time this week at the National Eisteddfod in Tregarron, Mid Wales.
A good range of organs is available to play and you can also meet and listen to David Thomas, organist at Llandaff Cathedral demonstrate the wonderful sound of the Viscount Instruments.
In addition the main auditorium instrument has been provided by Aspire so when you hear the organ there supporting the choral works that too is a Viscount instrument.
View the full details of the Eisteddfod programme. It’s a really great fun day out full of music and the arts with many distractions for those who prefer a less cultural experience!
An Impromptu performance at the Viscount stand. Watch on Facebook how a prize-winning baritone dropped by the Aspire Organ Stand. He sung that wonderful Welsh hymn, “Rho i’m yr hedd” to the equally wonderful hymn tune “Rhys”. He was accompanied by a prize-winning organist who just happened to stop in at the same time.
I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
