    Hi Jean-Paul,

    A fascinating Toccata you wrote. I thought I heard some influence from Gigout's famous Toccata in B-minor. Its been awhile since I played that myself - 33 years ago to be exact.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    Ok....

    I've taken some liberties with tempo and registration, but here you go!

    Nice piece, Jean-Paul

    Hi Giwro,

    Man, what do you have in the pedal department on that instrument you used? Is there a 64' Gravissima in there? Excellent interpretation dear sir - BRAVO!!!

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    No 64' Corno, but a BIIIIG 32 open and a gnarly 16' and 32' reed

    Glad you liked it... my pleasure to let musicalis hear his piece more realistically.

    Cheers...

    Dear Giwro,

    Did you say 64' Corno? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - you are a scream dear sir

    Imagine that rank on an organ!!!!!!!

    Anyway, that BIIIIIIIG 32' Open really exercised my woofers. I thought about the massive 32' Untersatz of the C.B. Fisk Organ in the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas. Supposedly it is a full-length double languid tuned on 40" of wind pressure - God only knows the flow rate of that airstream to that rank of pipes - probably could inflate the Hindenburg Blimp in ten seconds flat - HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    Hi Giwro,

    A fascinating interpretation, full of suspense. I've listened to your recording over and over and can't get enough of it.

    it *is* a BIIIIG 32', but oddly enough, it works under small combinations as well.

    Mebbe at some point I'll try the Xmas choral variations... we'll see...

    Cheers,
