    Los Endos worked pretty well for me on the organ. I've used the last few minutes of that at the cathedral before. Always loved His Banksness keyboard work.

    As for Yes, well ... with me, anything's fair game (especially their tracks that actually use pipe organ, and there are quite a few). I've had plenty of their charts blazing from gallery pipes before. Saw them (and met them) in Melbourne a few years ago - best show ever. Wakeman is still one of classic rock's best ever players. Agree 1000% with you QFE about the musicianship of those guys, no-one's really come close since (not for my ears anyway).

    I'm still happily using my GMedia M-Tron for all those superb sounds, does the job nicely.

    On the subject of Tony Banks, I have been toying with the idea of doing a Genesis arrangement for recitals; 'Firth of Fith' seems to be the most likely candidate at the moment. The only thing that puts me off is the fact that recital goers probably wouldn't 'get it' unless they were Genesis fans :-( Still, if I do it, I'll let you know how I get on.
    Lucky you QFE ! Ah... the rotating stage... One of the best concepts to the delight of the audience.
    Firth of Fith. DO IT !!! get it or not, just DO IT. They will like it anyway. The tune speaks fot itself.

    Cheers to that !

    The instrument across the way

    This is a recording of the William Drake instrument that I rehearse on.

    Hopefully, the attachment works - not tried it before. If it does, it is a recording done using the 'memo' feature on my iphone as an experiment. The performance is cold, so there are a couple of small splurges. the action sounds a little loud as the phone was on the bench next to me.

    QFE - what a gorgeous sound, thanks for that. Can't believe you recorded that on your damned iPhone!
    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 see what you mean about the reeds. Love them!

    Likewise, sorry for the late post! Cheers for the positive replies G7 and CT64. The recording quality is very good considereing the iphone is a multi-function device. Now if only it had a stereo mic input... that would be interesting.

    Still not got around to Firth of Fifth - too much music work! - not that I'm complaining given the way things are in GB at the moment.

    I think next week I'll be able to post something played at my church's Serassi organ.

    retouche

    Hi FinnViking
    I dont know what is better: this wonderful organ piece or your interpretation. Both magnificent. Not to forget the organ by Grönlund ( sorry - never heard, but a powerful instrument ).
    I am quite new in this forum, but I get a big respect from now on. Absolutely professional. Well I know some pieces of Batiste, but I will seek for this one.
    Best greetings from Bavaria

    Loved the recording QFE. Thank you. What a beautiful sounding instrument. Which church is it in and where?

    Hey hey hey! What's going on here? I have a lot of difficulty, mostly a total lack of knowledge and experience, about pipe organs.
    But, what do I see here, a discussion about Rick Wakeman, Tony Banks, Yes and Genesis, uh, art-rock? progressive rock? back then.
    I understand, so please, let me add, while I enjoy both, the Yes album "Relayer" with Patrick Moraz on keys is by far my favorite.
    When I saw Yes in Buffalo after Rick Wakeman returned, the first time, they did "Gates of Delerium" off the "Relayer" album,
    Steve Howe did my favorite section on double steel guitar, the slower part, not doing the complex, multi-layered keyboarding of Patrick Moraz.
    Whether that shows any ivory dominance, I don't know, even the ivory trade being something I'm not sure about, any more.

    But I came here to ask about the church organ in Salt Lake City that is featured with The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
    I attended enough meetings to not only listen, but sing along, so I feel musically attuned.
    Is this organ anything that is noted in the real world of organs, is there some stigma members here can't overcome?
    I know in Germany the Mormon church has been delisted as a religion and was legislated as a cult.
    So international members here might have more strident opinions than my own.
    This is about the organ, however.
    I'm sure they spent lots and lots and a Lot of salts of the earth monies.
