Rob,

That must have been a fun organ recital! Aren't the Whitlock pieces wonderful ? The Dubois, whilst hardly great music, is a party piece and fits exceedingly well under the hands. The Mozart K594 is a real challenge, though not nearly so as its sibling the K608.

Cheers!
Jason

Hi Jason

It cetainly was a very enjoyable recital by any means, I liked the Witlock pieces and the Trumpeting Organ so I wasted no time to phone my music supplier on order its going to be great! Id like to get the Toccata in G by Dubois at some point.

I was down at the Church today, although the organ is suffering because its very dry and some of the stops stick driving us crazy!! And its need of a good tune but not in the hot weather I assume around September time when the temperature drops, to be fair thou its a very nice organ goto:

At my wedding 23 years ago, we had the Dubois played as the recessional voluntary, and so this piece is pretty special to me!
Very Happy

I don't think the Dubois is very difficult. Certainly the pedal part is no challenge. As for the manuals, just work out a consistent fingering and start slowly and push the metronome. The piece should come together shortly. It's rather fun to play and really sounds harder than it is!

Cheers,
Jason

Rob

I think you may struggle to find that one.
A useful site I always use to find organ pieces to listen to is http://pipedreams.publicradio.org/ but none of Karl Jenkins organ pieces appear to have been broadcast Sad
