|The small print:|
|||Only organ recitals in Britain (excluding the Channel Islands and the Scilly Isles) can be listed.|
|||For the purposes of this website, an organ recital is defined as a concert featuring music played on an organ, pipe or electronic/digital, that is fixed at its location, i.e. an instrument that is not considered to be portable.|
|||Organ master classes, and choral concerts, orchestral concerts, etc. are not organ recitals but the following formats may be eligible for listing: (1) Concerts where the organ accompanies other musicians, mainly soloists; (2) Concerts that include significant organ works, e.g. the Poulenc Organ Concerto or Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony; (3) Organ recitals that are part of a whole day's programme, provided they have their own admission; (4) Organ-a-thons, i.e. multiple concerts spread over some hours at a single venue; (5) Events that are part-lecture, part-recital; (6) Silent movies accompanied by the organ; (7) Christmas concerts, with organ, that include audience carols.|
|||Requests for extra prominence, special publicity, etc. cannot be entertained (every concert appears on approximately 30 pages across the website, that's publicity enough). All concerts are listed at the webmaster's discretion.
