Stuff you might be interested in


Hi everyone
(Regarding From Darkness to Light being performed in Trondheim, Norway. Already posted on the Jon Lord section, and also just to say "Hello - yes I am still alive and actually not retired!)
From Darkness to Light was performed in its original version, which was written specifically for an amateur Church Choir, in my, then, local village Church in Hambleden in Buckinghamshire, England. It was played in, I think, April of 2000 and again at Fawley Court, Henley on Thames in July of that year. It has since been extensively re-written, and is now about ten minutes longer than the original, as well as being much better IMHO, and is also now intended for professional performance. It will be played in Hereford Cathedral in England on the 11th of May, and then at the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim on the 1st of July.
Boom of the Tingling Strings and Disguises are both recorded, mixed and ready to be released, as soon as we can arrange a London concert to play the pieces to hang a publicity hat on - probably late 2007/early 2008. In the mean time the piece I have been working on since just before I left DP - Durham Concerto - is nearing completion, and will be recorded in Liverpool with The Royal Liverpool Symphony Orchestra at the end of July. The recording is being released to coincide with the premier in Durham Cathedral in October. Once all that is out of the way, I shall continue to write for The Gemini Band and get myself back on stage - Hammond included - as soon as is possible.
Thank you all so much for your interest, and your input; your passion and your humour, and thanks for all the years of support. Please keep the faith and try not to be TOO hard on a band that, in spite of what some of you seem to think, does what it does out of love, and belief in the power of music to unite us all. See you down the road apiece - God bless and Kindest regards
Jon

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to appear on here!

Perhaps this quote ought to be made a Sticky Topic somewhere?

In other words don't get at that bunch of Daft Old Buggers too much, 'cos Jon Lord says so!!
