    Thank you Chris, I am really glad you liked it!

    Concerning especially Buxtehude's prelude, I tried to make it somewhat more colorful by making extensive use of reeds instead of just mixtures and principals (which are there of course). It is well known that the organs Buxtehude played were very rich in color partly due to their reeds. This is why I am using ranks from the Fagott 32' in the Pedal division to the Chalumeau 4' in the Great. Buxtehude had also in his disposition a Fagott (perhaps Posaun) 32', and I feel that his intention in this prelude was to actually use it.

    I totally agree with you Peter. Reeds can be useful for these circumstances! I have listened here in Athens Concert Hall the famous German organist Johannes Geffert playind Bach and Buxtehude with reeds instead of mixtures. The sound was marvellous!!!

    Some additional easy pieces for my organ fellows of the forum.

    Of particular interest are two points.

    (1) The most recent video, is a demo of all the celestes in my organ (five in total, including the library stops) and some of the strings/hybrids. In particular, you will listen to: Vox Coelestis II, Unda Maris II, Salizional Celeste II, Flauto Celeste II, Gemshorn Celeste II, combined with Salizional 8', Salizional 16', Gemshorn 16', Contragamba 16', Kontrabass 16', Kontrabass 32', and accompanied by Subbass (16' and 32').

    The piece I am playing (three times in this video with different registrations) is the chorale “Christ der du bist der helle Tag” by M. Dupré. All the details about stop combinations are included in the description of the video.

    If you want to listen to this rarely played chorale as it is meant to (i.e. in the Vox Coelestis), you either stick with the first part of the celestes/strings demo video, or you go directly to the dedicated video, where I include my own position regarding its harmonic structure.

    (2) I think I am starting to better understand how this organ should be voiced. An example is the Prelude and Fugue BWV 559. My personal feeling is that this prelude in particular calls for some .. wilderness, so this is what I did.

    I think it is time for a heads-up. Apologies to those who have subscribed and are already aware.

    I worked lately on a number of harmonisations that I had to do for the course of Harmony. They come from my last year of studies where the goal was to harmonise given melodies while trying to mimic as best as possible the style of J. S. Bach.

    Here is the list.

    Harmonisation on "Das Walt' mein Gott"

    Harmonisation on "Jesu dulcis"
    Harmonisation on "Jesu dulcis" (with correction)

    Harmonisation on "Der Himmel jetzt"

    Harmonisation on "Wer nur den lieben Gott lasst walten"

    In the first video, two (soprano and bass) out of the four voices were given. In the other cases, only the soprano was given without any indication regarding the possible harmonic choices.

    Each video has more than one part. First, I present the given music data (soprano + bass for the first case, soprano for the other cases). Then I add the bass and later on the other voices to show the full harmonisation. Finally, I play the full harmonisation using a variety of stop combinations. For example, in the last video the contrast between parts 3 and 6 of the video is very strong. I let you discover in which way. Similar differences can be found elsewhere also.

    For those interested, registration details can be found in the description of each video.

    As it is common in organ music, in order to fully enjoy these videos you will need either a good headset or an audio system with subwoofer. There are 32' stops in some cases.

    I think that I need some feedback about a technical issue. My last recording is the choral BWV 631, a short composition from Orgelbüchlein. This is my first try in 4K video territory. However, for some reason, YouTube does not offer me the 4K option for playback. It stops at HD. I cannot explain this because the original video that I uploaded has indeed resolution 3840 x 2160.

    So, can anyone try the video and report back, regarding the resolution settings offered by YouTube?

    Here is the link:

    J. S. Bach: Komm, Gott Schöpfer, Heiliger Geist, BWV 631

    Thanks!

    I tried it, the default setting was 720p but you can select 2160p 4K. which I did the result was fantastic but I am on an old copper connection and the video kept buffering but for those with ultra fast BB it would have been perfection, I just tried again and it gave 1080p and no buffering. Hope this is what you were after.
    I don’t want a signature any more

    Yes, thank you for testing, this is exactly what I wanted to know. So, other users can indeed see the 2160p option, which means that the issue is on my side. Most likely something with browser caching.
