"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm" (Churchill).

GMG is this weird place where the cult of Havergal Brian lives!

GMG is this weird place where the cult of Havergal Brian lives!

It's almost like GMG, in its origins, began life as a Havergal Brian Appreciation Society forum, but then morphed into GMG.

It is a stranger phenomena than UFOs or The Bermuda Triangle.

On top of this, I assumed for a long time that the thread name was listed as last name first and second name last, thus I thought the name was Brian Havergal.

I actually thought that as well until I heard the Gothic Symphony on the radio!

Nielsen
Shostakovich
Beethoven


This was tough, actually, but rather fair as well.

Somewhat similar to my list, which is:

Beethoven
Nielsen
Brahms

(in that order).
As soon as a word has left the lips, not even the fastest horse can catch up with it.

Carl Nielsen is doing really well in here...  0:)
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.
