    Hi Musicalis,

    I like the whole thing and want to play it in church at Christmas time. Would it be alright to change the order of the variations, or is it important to play them in the order which you have given?

    Smile Xmass choral

    Dear new friend
    I am glad that you will play this music for Xmass. You can take variations in the order you want; it doesn't matter.
    Please, let me know where the music will be played.
    Also, if you can record and send a mp3, I would be very happy to hear this music played on a real organ, as I cannot do it by myself. It will be a great xmass gift for me.
    My next song will be dedicated to you.

    J-Paul

    I'm thrilled. But I must tell you that I've been playing the organ for only 1 year. So I'm not sure if I can learn the whole thing by Christmas. But I will try.
    I have a wonderful church organ to play on, and good recording equipment.

    Hello musicalis,

    How generous of you to dedicate your next composition to Flute'n'Pedal. I must say that these next two variations are so sweet. What a gift of composing you have and that MIMF is privileged to count you as a member of its ranks.

    Many blessings to you and yours,

    Corno Dolce

    Smile dedicating

    Hi Corno Dolce !
    I will be very glad to dedicate an organ tune to you too or to your church. Just help me to write the text, because dedicating in English with mistakes will not be very serious.
    You are the next on the list after Flute'n'pedal.
    I don't know if you will get "variation V" or a new tune.

    Variation IV

    Hi everybody !
    Variation IV is ready.
    It is a slow and easy to play tune with cromhorne for melody and gamba celste for accompaniement. Time signature is 3/4 to change a little.

    Here is the MP3 file http://musicalis.monespace.net/autres/img528a.mp3

    Hi flute'n'Pedal. I am waiting for your reply before I publish the score.

    Friendly.

    Hello Mâitre Musicalis,

    Oh WOW! - dedicate a tune to me? I tremble as a leaf in an Autumn windstorm. What an honor - oh dear - I am so unworthy of such a distinction.

    Most humbled,

    Corno Dolce

    Musicalis,

    What a sweet and introspective variation IV you have graced this forum with. May I ask if Sir Frederik Magle has been in touch with you? I think that he would be very interested in this work of yours.

    Humbly yours,

    Corno Dolce

    Now, I am glad to present you my fifth variation (and may be the last one) of the Xmass choral for pipe organ. Variation 5 is an adagio. It will be dedicated to my friend Corno Dolce, so you should have to wait a little for the Pdf score.
    The 5 variations can be played in the order of your choice.
    Here is the mp3, made with my cheap software that is not really a virtual organ. If somebody can and want to make something better, send me a PM.

    Musicalis,

    It's as though the music gets better and better with each variation. There is no cromhorne on my organ, but I think I can figure out a good substitute. Maybe at some point you could compose a "coda" for your piece. You could always add more variations afterwards if you wanted to.

    Musicalis,

    I am marveling at your composing abilities ... each creation you have presented to this community is absolutely beautiful. It is very evident that these works originate in your heart and soul.

    Keep up all the great work.

    Hello Most Honorable Musicalis,

    What a splendiferous work this fifth variation is. It has such a solemn majesty, full of dignity yet unpretentious, tender and sweet yet very noble. WOW - I am floored that such a gem is dedicated to me. Thank you, Musicalis, from the bottom of my heart.

    I really do hope that Frederik Magle would find some time in his most busy schedule to listen to these works of pure art composed by a very noble soul.

    In greatest humility,

    Corno Dolce
