    Passacaglia in C Minor


    this is a piece I wrote some years ago, but I have recorded it yesterday. As i had no time to program the stops change, I played the whole music with the same registration, from the begining to the end, and I think it is nota stupid idea. The registration was something like this :
    Positive : flute 8' - 4'third 1 3/5
    Great : flutes 8' -4'
    Pedal : Bourdon 16' flute 8'-4' clairon 4'

    Hi J.P.

    That was a superfantastic Passacaglia in c-minor - Thanx for sharing dear sir.

    Let me suggest that you should listen to Wilhelm Middelschulte's Passacaglia in d-minor. He was a master of counterpoint and fugue - here is a sample of that work:


    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    "Improvisational Art":

    A while back I listened to a recording of Carlo Curley (I see little mention of him on these forums!) playing the Bach c-minor one on a modernized French organ in a concert. He played it MUCH more slowly than what I've usually heard. And I've seen some tapes of him in which he was practically running races on the pedals. Apparently peoples' ideas of how to play music can change over time.
