    If you do a search of the net, there's a few places selling organ shoes and they all seem to have about 1 1/2 inch heels. I had wondered why they were so, now I know.
    I prefer my organ shoes with a heel of 1 1/8" - probably because my first pair, made in Vancouver BC were 1 1/8". Makes for easy thirds.

    If you wnat some pedal exercises, look for pieces by Walter Dietrich. I have several of them in Ernst Kaller's Orgel Schule. The first piece in book 2 is a pedal solo that ends on a chord in G major: GGG (Left foot), BB.D (right foot). That's the lowest G and highest B and D on the pedal board.

    Healey Willan has some pedal exercises also, and they use the full 32 note compass. Dietrich's music uses the European 30 note compass. I first learned on a 30 concave parallel - and still find it easier to use than concave and radiating.

    But it's not forbidden to post the LINK to that photo and to other COOOOOOOOl videos in Raùl Prieto's website!

    This is the organ in S. Maria de Matarò (look at that "trompeterìa"... SLURP! ):

    This is the disposition:

    And here are two videos you MUST see... simply

    http://www.raulprieto.net/videos/Reger46.avi

    I wish to start a new thread on both the performer and that instrument... comments welcome!

    Very impressive, Gedackt.

    I won`t comment on the Reger because I don`t know the piece (and I`m not an organist,) but that version of the Danse Macabre works extremely well, IMO. Enjoyed it a lot. Good to be able to see the player`s feet here.

    As for starting a new thread, please do!

    Glad you enjoyed it folks! Oh by the way, since you were talking about organ shoes... if you look carefully at the big photo of which I posted the link, behind Raùl sitting at the console you will see his regular street shoes, on the floor... eheheheheh!

    Interesting find, NEB ... My calves and ankles were starting to cramp up just reading through the notes. I did notice about 6 places where the staff notes extend below the piano or organ pedalboard range ... possibly this was a piano piece originally written for the left hand at one time and transcribed for organ. Surely not impossible on the organ, but man, what a workout <gasp> ...
