    Another of me playing the ex Ritz cinema, Nuneaton Compton cinema organ at St John Vianney Church in Clayhall, London.

    Im playing the 1939 Bing Crosby hit "An apple for the teacher" which makes use of many different sounds including the Glockenspiel and Tromba and Krummet ranks. This is my own arrangement of the song as I felt it suited this instrument better being speeded up.

    Many thanks to the church officials for allowing me access to this magnificent instrument and for making me so welcome.

    One thing to note - I am certainly no cinema organist but hope I can made a bit of a joyful noise for the Lord on what has to be the best example of a Compton cinema 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 dailymotion.
