Listings in the Main Section are colour-coded. Each has a pastel background indicating the day and, across its top, a darker stripe denoting the time band; grey for mornings, green for lunchtimes (12–2), blue for afternoons, red for evenings (after 6). Day colours are blue (Mon), pink (Tue), green (Wed), orange (Thu), grey (Fri), brown (Sat), yellow (Sun).
For convenience, the majority of these links have some relationship to the pages they open, e.g: L for London, T for Thomas Trotter, Y for Yorkshire, 7 for the Next 7 Days, 5 for Wales (there being five letters in Wales – similarly, Scotland is 8). Also, note the pairs of brackets for 'mirror' regions, i.e. south west/east, west/east midlands, north west/east.
Even if the page you want is not available via the alpha-numeric links, one of them may be close to it. For example: To view recitals at Westminster Cathedral, click on "W" to open the Westminster Abbey page and use the "next venue" arrow to go to Westminster Cathedral's page. All alpha-numeric links are duplicated by the Keyboard Shortcuts.
You can also:
Click on the site's title (organrecitals.com) to go to the front page – this varies depending on the time of day. Usually, it
will be that day's list of concerts. However, when they have finished, the front page is chosen randomly from a selection of other pages. This random option is also used between the hours of one and six each morning.
The Home page is available via the 'house' symbol adjacent to the main index links (Areas/Venues/Organists/Dates).
Click on the blank space to the right of the site's title to jump to the bottom of that page.
Click on the text "Established: 2004" (also to the right of the site's title) for Past Listings.
Click on the text "Short URL: org2.co" (after "Established: 2004") for an explantion of that section.
You may like to know that:
Many of the site's corners change shape. Over the course of a week, they range from almost square to very rounded
– the idea being to subtly vary the site whilst retaining its familiar, overall appearance.
The colour of the main index links (Areas/Venues/Organists/Dates) reflects the current time band.
During Advent and Lent the background colour of the Main Section changes to purple (elsewhere on the site, purple
represents cancelled recitals). On Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and All Souls' Day the background is black. Likewise on the anniversaries of the deaths of some well-loved characters from the organ world, specifically: Stephen Bicknell (d. 18 August 2007), Carlo Curley (11 August 2012), Nick Gale (10 March 2015), Julian Rhodes (15 March 2001), and John Scott (12 August 2015). On these dates, a message appears at the top of each page in the Main Section saying "organrecitals.com is today dedicated to the memory of..."
