    I was lsitening to Choral Evensong on BBC Radio 3 on iplayer and was really spellbound by the organ voluntary at the end of the service. It's a fantastic piece. I did some reseach on this piece and discoverd that it is not published and is only in private circulation which is unfortunate.

    Scroll to 52 mins - what do you think?

    Toccata isn't the name of a specific piece, it's the name of a type of piece. :rolleyes:

    It means "touch" and is usually a piece that excercises the fingers. This one certainly sounds more Simon Preston than Mozart. He was organist at Christchurch Oxford when I was at Magdalen in the late 70's.
