    Composition in reverse of "Toccata and Fugue in d minor"

    I found this to be very very interesting and almost alternative music. Is by French composer Jean-Paul Verpeaux whom still composes on virtual instruments and computer due to Parkinsons Disease. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Looking forward to your opinions ( hint: listen to it more than once and you can really get the feel of it as I did not care for it at first but it grows on you ).

    I think it is a lovely piece, Jean-Paul (musicallis) does some really good music. It is just a shame that he can no longer play the organ.

    Thanks Bill for sharing that with us.

    Very clever, but I do not yet appreciate its musical value. Perhaps I shall reach such appreciation with repeated hearings.

    Excellent! I really enjoyed this piece right from the very first. Jean-Paul's innovative composing style always inspires me. I need to get this piece and add it to my repertoire for a future concert. I performed one of his compositions (Lithanie) at an organ concert this past Sunday afternoon.

    Strangely appealing. I thought I was going to hate it.

    Krummhorn - did you record your concert? Can you upload an MP3 so we can all "ooowww and aaahhh" at your expertise?


    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
