Composer: Sir Arthur Sullivan
Sample Set: Silver Octopus Concert Series (125/100/85/75) HW V
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Musicals / Overtures
Description:
Probably best known for his "Onward Christian Soldiers" hymn tune and possibly, "Seated one day at the Organ" Sullivan along with his lyricist Gilbert, could be seen as the equivalent of their time, to some of the other more recent famous musical composers / lyricists such as Lloyd Webber and Rice or Oscar and Hammerstein.
Often rather classed as "non music" or that "horrible rompitty pompitty rubbish" by too many musical snobs, Sullivan was a truly gifted composer who not only composed great tunes but also did some wonderful orchestration.
I have worked off the piano score to create this recording which has had to be done in midi for the time being although it is quite playable on any decent sized organ.
The registration that I have chosen has been to approach an orchestral sound in order to show some of the more symphonic sounds that the new Concert Series is capable of.
This particular arrangement could be performed on any of the top four models in the series.
No upperwork nor typical diapason choruses have been used, just the orchestral voices and string section.
Performance: MIDI
Recorded in: Stereo
