I heard this piece on last Sunday at Church. I just moved to this church and it's my first time attending. The organ is huge and when I heard this piece I fell in love with it. The interweaving harmonies, just awesome. I went to IMSLP and downloaded a score, and transcribed it to Finale. I made one adjustment, in M. 27 I use a C instead of an F, which the Edition Outremontaise directs. I think it functions better as a close pivot chord (C to Bb) than the original (F to Bb). Not a big difference, but I thought I'd add something :wink: (I actually think that's what I heard during the Mass).

I's music like this that make me want to be an organist! :)

Hi Riley,

If you ever do become an organist, please play a lot of low notes! :)

Nice piece. Sounds familiar :D I must say I prefer a recording on a normal organ.
Why did you double the note values in bar 3 ?

Hi Monica,

Yes Ma'am! :mrgreen: I love the sound of the bass notes, too. I've tried an organ once because my Dad had one once (not a big one, a small one he purchased from a Rabbi) but just hearing the sheer power of the wind blowing through the pipes, playing the principal stop, I'm sure anybody who plays it can agree, there's nothing like it :)

Hi Chris,

Yes, I heard your version, after I record it. I like both your playing and the organ tone color much better than this finale VST plugin: Garritan's Virtual Organ. Now to answer your question this was my mistake. The first beat of the first measure in the left hand is also messed up. In the Edition Outremontaise the middle staff is treble, but on finale the middle staff comes default as bass. So I messed up, you hear and F but it should be a D and then in the third measure it should be the first F of the treble clef. I think besides that, it is, OK, but I hope you don't check in case I'm liable for more scrutiny :oops: :lol:

Also the tempo in my recording is at 70 MM, when the score directs 84. Andante Religioso means slow right? Like trying not to sin and so being cautious=slow :wink:

FYI I am pretty sure Edition Outremontaise is a well-informed individual organist making Finale scores at home. I appreciate what he does (and I use some of his material) but you should use the same care as you would with any unpublished Finale score. If I'm wrong, someone correct me.
