very nice sound in the first bach. I should use it for the church entry...I will listen to all later on.

Christ, my ignorance....can the organ play fast trills as piano??? Is that the score used for piano too??

I think there is a difference between the organ and a piano. I dont think you can play organ music on the piano and vise versa. Look at some of Bach's 371 four-part Chorales--some of the notes in the left hand are impossible to play due to the distance in between them, say from a low F# to an A one octave higher.

That's just my thoughts. I'm probably wrong. :roll:

Thanks Chris, that was just what my overworked person needed!

Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme. Have you played this one? It's so ethereal.

If it's an organ with electrical transmission from keyboard to wind mechanism, and it concerns hight registers (which means short, fast pipes) indeed trills can be pretty smart as you can hear in places. Gets more difficult with mechanical transmission organs because of the pulls and levers in between, and also with lower registers, as big pipes need a little time to come to produce their sound.

No, I do not use piano scores for organ. Except for the Bach four duets on the site, which are for manuals only and can be played equally well on piano and organ.

I've tried it out but it is not on my shortlist yet. One of those that everybody knows. I'll get to it eventually.

Glad you enjoyed these. It's still a bit ragged and/or stiff in places but shows much progress since the last recordings.
