    opinions please

    Quite a lot of the organ repertoire gets recorded on Harpsichord, are there any objections to posting such harpsichord tracks in this forum rather than the Classical music forum?

    IIRC some works were written to be played on either, here Passacaglia & Fugue BWV582 on Feldberg pedal harpsichord

    (For some reason it's not allowing me to post 2 tracks in one post, so comparison follows in separate post)

    I see no problem with posting them to this forum myself.. I play much Harpsichord material on organ anyway..i.e. positiv style organ

    I have not problems with this either ... Most organists play the harpsichord and vice versa.

    Like Bill, I have also adapted harpsichord scores for use on the organ.

    If there is enough interest, we can always create another sub forum for the category .
