Procol Harum music

in a Methodist setting


Jeremy Gilien writes to BtP:

"One of my part-time jobs is playing the organ (Allen) at Downey United Methodist Church (where the Carpenters grew up, played music, and where Karen Carpenter's funeral was held Richard Carpenter was a past organist there)

I occasionally slip in some Procol or Matthew for Preludes, Postludes, or offertories

A lot of people came up to me after the service and asked about the pieces, which led to some Procol talk, and I was surprised to find out how many people in this rather conservative little suburban church are big PH fans (at least of AWSoP)"

Curiously one of the BtP webmasters has also used Grand Finale as a Postlude in a Methodist service, though not on the organ but in an arrangement for piano, four hands. No-one turned a hair until we bashed out the guitar solo, fortissimo
