    David m. Patrick plays at katarina church stockholm

    Devonshire organist David M. Patrick, now living in Norway, plays the Third Movement of Sonata No. 4 by Alexandre Guilmant on the lovely sounding van den Heuvel organ installed in the Katarina Church, Stockholm in 2000. This is one of a series of eight fascinating videos which show pictures of the construction and installation along with written descriptions on the instrument. The music on the series, which are all worth watching, is by Guilmant and Vierne from a recital by Patrick at Katarina.

    Living in Stockholm and seeing the flames enveloping the Church was a very sad experience for me. And having played a recital on the former instrument I am not so overly enthused by the Van den Heuvel organ. Carl Ã…kerman who built the symphonic organ that got torched in 1990 had worked for C-C in Paris. Carl definitely knew how to get "The Sound" that is known the world over.

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
