    Here, my organ friends are the extant 20 sonatas by Jose Rheinberger_Part 1. Please enjoy them. David
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    01.pdf : David you have any idea where or are there any suggested registrations for the three sections of this piece. Prelude - foundations with maybe one mixture ; andante - flutes/ string ; finale ...full organ... I think I might like to use this as a concert piece as well as church work. Thanks, Bill

    Mr Bill, organ registration is an art and as no two organs are identical it's best to suggest that "whatever sounds most pleasant or pleasing on your particular instrument when heard from the body of the hall/church (not at the console)" will work. I noted that Mr Rheinberger only indicated levels of volume of sound, he obviously hesitated to suggest registration.

    Thanks, David, for sharing all these Rheinberger works. I enjoy playing Rheinberger, what little of his music I had up until this point.

    I'm always on the lookout for service music - I've been through my entire static library of service music at least 20 times and now tired of those. Your offerings here really compliment my digital library, some of which have been acquired from IMSLP. I was, like most of us were, going through IMSLP withdrawals for the time they were offline.
