Another of me playing the magnificent Compton pipe organ installed at Derby Cathedral.

I am only an amateur and by no means a pro so wanted to point this out and hope you are still able to get the jist of the amazing skills of the John Compton Organ Company Ltd.

For something completely different here is a snippet of me playing 'On the sunny side of the street' as sung by singers including Doris Day. Comptons were famous of course for their cinema organs so something of this nature seemed ideal. With the pipework of Comptons church and cinema installations coming off the same production line its perhaps no surprise that a good cinema organ like sound can be obtained from this 'King of Comptons'. There is no mistaking that wonderful Compton Tuba!

With the Cathedral being open to visitors and also some maintenance work being carried out background noise was unavoidable. Before the 'experts' jump in, I only had one hour available to play this instrument and had never seen it before so please excuse the rusty playing!

Many thanks to my fiancee Michelle for arranging me the visit to this fantastic Compton organ!

NOTE: this is purely my interest in order to make sure that these fine organs are archived forever and I do not make any monetary profit by this video being on youtube.
