    Smile Chaconne in D minor (dorian)

    Hi friends !
    I am glad to present you my latest organ work : a chaconne in D minor in dorian mode. The thema is 16 bars in 3/4, followed by 8 variations. The music starts very quiet and ends very loud but without reeds except at the pedal where you can hear the bombard 16' of Romanswiller organ. I started composing this song two days ago and I recorded it this evening (sunday february 3 th).
    I hope you will like and play this strange music. please, send your comments.

    http://musicalis.monespace.net/autres/img577a.mp3 is the link to the MP3.

    you can also download the score ( 5pages) on my web site :

    Friendly yours. Jean-Paul

    Hi Musicalis,

    The piece has a Celtic sound. I could imagine it being used as background music at, say, a wedding party. Or people could do a slow dance to it.
    These virual organ recordings are starting to make me dissatisfied with the church organs I play on. I found myself complaining to a priest this morning that the organ badly needed an extra stop or two. It's a pity that pipe organs are so much more expensive to build up than virtual organs!

    hello F& P.
    Thanks for your post. You are right, virtual organs are not expensive and do not need a big room. But if I had money enough, my dream will be to have a pipe organ at home, even a small one.

    Musicalis,
    Thank you for the Chaconne - your latest piece. I like it very much, and I have downloaded the MP3 and printed out the manuscript. I look forward to learning to play it. The virtual organ sound is good, too.
