    Finn my friend - long time no see!! Nice to see you posting here again!

    thank you for sharing your beautiful music
    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.

    I guess I can say I'm partial to the organ at the Methodist
    church I go to. Here's the picture. It does sound as good
    as it looks.

    Finn, that was a most uplifting performance, thanks so much for posting it. Marvellous sounding instrument too, and clearly a professional quality recording - was that for a CD by any chance?

    I just recorded that one piece, and from time to time I compile my recordings to a CD. Our recording equipment is always in place and ready to go - the mics are suspended from the ceiling and the recorder is in the organist's room beside the organ. Just push "Rec" and let go Very convenient - I can record whenever I get the inspiration.

    I have a lot of similar (unknown but nice) pieces on my CD's. Maybe on the next CD I'll include the Batiste too. From time to time I also add music to my homepages at http://www.hakanpaa.net/hearmeplay.htm as that is a lot better way to get "audience" than selling organ CD's...

    The recording device is Tascam CDRW-750 and the mic preamp is some cheap 4-channel Behringer basic model.

    Here another nice piece, "Ritzy" by Nigel Ogden, that demonstrates the theatrical side of the organ:

    Here's a mp3 of me playing one of the local Organs.
    It's the only tracker organ out of the 3 I play now.

    The piece is by Mozart - and I apologise if you hear any mistakes

    Doug nice full sounding organ. You did well building this instrument I'd say for being self taught.. Keep up the good work.

    Doug, I'm jealous - I'd love something that sounded like that to practice on at home! Nice stuff there.

    Mods, would it be worth making this thread a Sticky? I think it could be quite a valuable and entertaining resource for quite a few of us (I'm certainly enjoying it!).

    Sure ... we'll try it for awhile at the top of the posting list

    Great topic and some wonderful examples of the King of Instruments ... Anyone is invited to post their sound clip - we won't grade on errors ... let's hear what your pipes sound like.

    Here are a few more from me as I'd forgotten I was on a CD recording some years back showcasing a few of Adelaide's larger and more enjoyable instruments (the most enjoyable I've already posted here )

    1. Brahms Chorale Prelude "Herzlich thut mich erfreuen" on the Hill, Norman & Beard organ in St Peter's (Anglican) Cathedral. More info on the St Peters organ is here.

    2. Alain Fantaisie No.2 on the Casavant organ in the University of Adelaide's Elder Hall. More info on the Elder Hall organ is here.

    3. Pärt Annum per annum on the Eagles, Fincham & Hobday, Dodd, Roberts, Stephens (!) organ in Pilgrim Uniting Church. More info on this rather large beast is here.

    There is another track on the disc showing off more of the St Peter's organ but I don't want to post it without the say-so of the guy who played it (because it wasn't me that time). But certainly with the Alain and Pärt pieces, you get to hear quite a few different registrations.

    Hope there's something here for folk to enjoy.
