Online performances of Bitgood works

Filed under: Bitgood Music Online — Grace @ 10:49 pm

Working up to the idea of making audio downloads or streaming broadcasts of organ performances by Roberta Bitgood available, I have been scanning the environment for existing online performances of Bitgood compositions. These include a performance by Frances Nobert of the Choral Prelude on “God Himself Is With Us,” included in one of Michael Barone’s Pipedreams programs entitled “American Perspectives.” The program was broadcast on November 5, 2001, and is still available on the Web at:

With appropriate gadgets inside or attached to your computer, you can listen to the program easily. I’ll keep looking for more Bitgood audio streams and add to this post when more are found. Meanwhile, stay tuned for performances by Roberta Bitgood herself–a challenge to put online, but I’d like to try. We have already processed audio files derived from Roberta’s two known LP recordings. Depending on how the technical issues are resolved, selections from these would certainly be appropriate additions to the Roberta Bitgood Commons site. I hope to make them available from the Memorabilia page. If this effort is successful, I will post a separate notice about it.
