    Jean-Paul my lovely friend - that is just beautiful, let me help you with your English: See, the Conquering Hero Comes is better (there is only one hero, not two or more and See requires a comma).

    Your arrangement is lovely, beautiful. I just wish my organ playing was up to the challenge!

    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.

    Bravo, maestro, Bravo

    Very delightful on every account ... a fresh approach to such a familiar theme and splendidly composed. I love this piece.

    Thank you Jean-Paul, that was delightful, your talent shines through. I love that piece, it took me back 34 years to when I walked down the isle to it.

    Salut Jean-Paul !

    Good work. perfect theme choice. Beautiful voicing on most of the piece.
    But I think is hard to perform it live at this speed (Coopman type...)......

    Is this one of your MYCO sets playing? I 'm still working with it !

    Bravo, and thanks for sharing this work with us my friend

    Hi my friends

    Thanks for your comments. give me your e-mail address if you want the score (free for you only)
    Panos, You can play slower if you want. Thee organ I use is a private home made organ <farmborough Abbey> but designed manually before I wrote Myco.
    I'll release soon Sancta Magdalena, a new organ not built with Myco and using pipes from a French organ from Normandie, a 100% new sample-set
