    Please identify this.....

    Dear all,

    I have posted a video of Mr. Handel Manuel conducting a practice session. I have mentioned the name here because he is one of the few Indians who have attained international acclaim in western classical music. sadly I dont have any recordings of his organ playing, but he was the organist and Choir director at St.Andrew's Kirk, Chennai(Madras).

    With my little knowledge of classical music I couldn't identy fy this piece, can anyone shed light on this.

    regards,

    Alex

    it's not often I hear music I can't identify but this one has stumped 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.

    not sure either but does have a"G.F. Handel" ring to it.
