    The video was so badly out of sync that I rendered it anew.

    Thanks Marko. How did you gain access to that particular organ? Personal friend or formal advance request? Hadn't heard of the composer before, but didn't feel his composition suited the building. What was your opinion of the organ?

    Personal friend.
    As to the piece, there were about 5 minutes time so I had to choose something short, and due to the lent, only max. mezzoforte was allowed. And I wanted to be able to record it, so it had to be something simple... In that short time it was practically impossible to create any opinion of the organ.

    What a shame you were so limited by both time and Lent. Nevertheless, you've played it!

    Other than the fact that it is absurdly small for this vast church, surely....?
    Pierre Cochereau rocked, man.
