    Paolo's thoughts on Christmas

    Hallo to all.

    I came across this video with Paolo Oreni playing Christmas carols the way he likes....
    Here :

    Fast feet, isn't it ? or you think he's joking?

    By the way the organ in front of the orchestra is something I like better than the lonelyness in churches, where the orchestra is down to....earth and the organist above the clouds..... just thinkin'...

    regards

    Thank you for your replies gentlemen,

    I'm glad you enjoyed, sometimes noisy yes , and with no apparent cause... but he's young, later he can control this raw power to more creative result, I believe.

    yours, always
