Back in my childhood days, I used to attend Sunday Mass with music from the choir, the congregation, and yes, the pipe organ. Nowadays, just a wimpy choir, a small congregation and a piano all but replaced the musical embrace I had for so many years. When watching Ovation TV, one man made my memories of attending my childhood Catholic parish resurface as he explains the history, function, and other facts of the memorable instrument. That man is no other than Howard Goodall, a composer, musicologist, presenter, and (currently) his nation's "national singing ambassador," who is one of my influential role models.
There are many parts I like in the four-part series, shown currently on Ovation TV. My favorite one, featured in the first episode, is when Howard Goodall plays the crumhorn to introduce the viewers about reed pipes. Others include the parts when he dances to a band organ, makes organ pipes (the part in which the only time he sings in the series, i.e. "Tada!"), and, of course, plays most of the organs in the series.
This is a must see for those who want to learn about the instrument played more or less often in church or who are Howard Goodall nuts themselves!
This deserves 10/10 stars!
