    methodistgirl. I too have been looking hard ad the D minor Toccata but only have a single manual workstation on which I have synthesisized a magnificent Church Organ sound. Then I arranged the first movement for single manual only written out as a lead sheet. Looking at it this way it is a really interesting study and I have almost memorised it now. If you can read a lead sheet I would be happy to send you a copy. I am off to Australia in ten days and would just love to see the Pipe organ in the town hall at Sydney.Sylvie Pacey P.S Do you live in the U.K?

    Do I live in the UK?

    Sylvie, I live in Madisonville, Kentucky, in the usa. Unless you are
    talking about the University of Kentucky which is also called around
    here the UK. That's our UK. I also enjoy other organ pieces like
    church hymns from the Methodist Hymnbook. What church do you
    go to?

    hi Judy, thought you might live in the U.S when I saw the picture of your church in the forum. 'Fraid you are far from me now in the U.K and also when I fly to Australia on Sunday where I shall be spending a few weeks visiting Canberra, Queensland's Gold Coast and Sydney where I hope to see the BIG organ in Sydney town hall. Imagine playing the D minor Toccata on that!!!!! I play as a deputy organist at a small church here in Somerset and have a small singing group that I work with, entertaining in Nursing homes and over 60's clubs where I usually turn out to be one of the oldest people there. (Only in years, still young at heart) Enjoy your playing, I expect like us you are dusting off all the Christmas music.Sylvie Pacey.

    I was in Australia in June and had a great time visiting a few organs off a link that Contratrombone very kindly provided: http://www.ohta.org.au/

    It has a list of all the must sees, I was mainly in Melbourne and was able to hear June Nixon play on the superb one at St. Pauls, and a tour of the Melbourne town hall also includes a tour INSIDE the organ (which I believe is bigger than the Sydney one in terms of pipes), which I think is great to increase interest in this fantastic instrument. In Sydney I was able to see the fine organs at St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral and St . Andrew's cathedral in action. Then I visited the giant at the Sydney Town Hall, and its truly magnificent. Unfortunately there was some renovation going on in the main hall that day so I could not get very close to it but I shall return someday within the next couple of years and hope to see it being played. Enjoy your trip!

    fugue

    Sylvie, what church do you go to? You saw where I go to church.
    I'm glad you mentioned Christmas music! Right now I'm keeping a
    lid on that subject until after october. I get sick and tired of christmas
    music here because the radio stations wear you out playing them right
    after Thanksgiving. Sometimes right after Halloween! I was talking to
    the church musicians about it the other day when to start playing it.
    Krummhorn, I know just what you mean! I laughed when I read your
    reply. I won't have to dust mine off. I will probably oil up my talent
    just a bit so that I won't be so rusty! I don't know how this church
    handles Christmas yet until I experience the first. I just joined last
    july. I will be waiting!
