C S Lang (1891–1971)

General Back

Craig Sellar Lang was born in New Zealand and spent most of his career in England.


Fanfare Back

His fanfare uses the reed stops against the full Great division of the organ.


Tuba Tune Back

It is in the style of the eighteenth century trumpet tune made famous by such composers and Henry Purcell and John Stanley. The organ tuba is a rounder, fuller tone than the typical trumpet and is usually the loudest stop on an English organ.
