Albert Ketèlbey and Reginald Foort
If you were to ask for two iconic British composers who were organists, the top answer might well be these two giants. I am pleased to offer a recording by Foort from 1929 of Ketèlbey’s “The Sacred Hour” on a small Wurlitzer in London, England. This Style F played by Foort was the same model we had in our Carolina Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina. Sadly, the group attempting to rebuild our theatre has no interest in replacing the organ. I offer several recordings of this Ketèlbey classic, and I hope you enjoy them.
