    C-M W Bach's momento

    Hi there, any of your brilliantly gifted organists ever play C-M Widor's "Bach's Momento"? If so, can you share you recording with us? What a lovely looking suites of pieces (far too difficult for me).
    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.

    Hi CT

    Since I do not play I can't help you in that aspect. However, here is a video of the Mattheus-Final from YouTube.

    You know you have reached Middle Age when it takes you longer to rest up than it did to get tired.

    @GoneBaroque, thank you my friend, lovely. I have been very fortunate to have played the St Matthew Passion twice (both as leader of orchestra two violas). One of the most profound musical journeys a performer can take, in my humble opinion.
