    Symphonia Elegiaca by Camil van Hulse

    Some excellent organwork by the performer who plays the music of a composer I only knew by name until last night...

    Absolutely love all the works of van Hulse ... he was born here (Tucson, Arizona) and played in a local church (St. Peter & Paul RC) for many many years.

    Indeed........Jeanne Demessieux wrote a piece called "Octaves" for organ - and it requires quite the gymnastics with the feet.

    Question is, do these 'gymnastics' improve the grey matter .... or wear it out?!

    That's not true.
    Camil van Hulse was born in Sint-Niklaas (Belgium, Europe) in 1897 and he moved to Oklahoma (and later Tucson, Arizona) in 1923. In 1924 he became organist in the All Saints Church and later on for the St. Peter and Paul Church. Finally he dies at 91 in Tucson.
