    Two wonderful works from one of the first

    Let me clarify my title, one of the first municipal organists in Australia, he was I think about the 3rd at the helm of the monster at Sydney Town Hall (see my avatar).

    I just wish I could find more of his famous arrangments, please enjoy. I can't play them they're far too difficult, I'd love Lars or Frederik to record these and put them up here soon?
    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.

    Hallo CT !

    Difficult they are. Especially the March , octaves in pedals with some 32nd notes occasionaly and full of block chords....
    Is there any recording of them ?

    Yeah ! I see what you mean.

    I had great fun with pieces to avoid at all costs !!!

    I play one of them JSB Fantasia/Fugue in Am. It took me all 3 months of last summer to master it (fugue theme on ped is a little tricky play it with the chords with both hands, but I can now play it easy). It's a fast finger play

    I 'm also impressed with the number 100.000 compositions for organ...
    It's a HUGE library, if one can ever get it !

    Thanks David
