Soul Music

Tuesday 21 March 2006 13:30-14:00 (Radio 4 FM)

Repeated: Saturday 25 March 2006 15:30-16:00 (Radio 4 FM)


The series about music that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

Ever since Widor's Toccata was included in the marriage service of Princess Margaret in 1960, this display of fireworks at the organ has become a firm favourite for married couples to exit the church by at the end of their wedding ceremonies.

Famous organist Thomas Trotter dissects the intricacies and dispels the myths about playing Widor's Toccata, and organist Daniel Roth explains what it's like to be Widor's direct successor as the present day organist at the St Sulpice in Paris.
