Toccata for organ and tape

composer
1980

 
Harvey was amongst the composers who led the way in the field of electro-acoustic music. In Toccata (1980) for organ and pre-recorded tape, written in the same year as Mortuos Plango, Vivos Voco, the composer asked for the sound source to be placed very close to the organ pipes. It is an exciting piece to hear live, as the organist interacts with the pre-recorded sounds. Toccata was often played around the world by John Scott, the illustrious former St John’s organ student, and indeed it featured in the last recital he gave here in the college.
