    Aloha J.P.

    Again you hit a home-run. This is a serious piece - very Bach Chorale Prelude like. I would play the melody with a wistful Cor Anglais 8' plus Flute a Bec 4' and the accompaniment with a Bourdon 8' and Cor de Nuit 8'. The Pedal would have Bourdon 32' and Soubasse 16' and Bourdon 8'.

    Cheers,

    CD

    I am not an organist, but I loved that piece, it is beautiful. I found it very relaxing, thank you Jean Paul for another good piece of music.

    My husband and I are very honoured by this work. It is definitely classical music. But that doesn't mean that it isn't for children. I've seen infants who were enthralled by Bach.
    So I'll have to try it out at a children's service, and see what kind of reaction it gets.

    Hi J-Paul,

    Beautifully done ... what wonderful incorporation of a very familiar tune. I will be anxious to try this at church on Thursday (my day at church for filing music, selecting preludes, practicing, etc). If things go well, I might get it recorded, too.
