Forget the "switched on" version. I would love to take a crack at the actual Buxtehude on that organ. An interesting (and attractively-modern) facade. Thanks for the link, and welcome back!

Wow. That sounds absolutely wonderful. And any organist who has the nerve to "trot out" (sorry -- the words were on the keyboard before I realized!) BWV 565 as the first thing is serving notice that 1) this is a wonderful instrument and 2) he knows EXACTLY how to put it through its paces. It takes real guts to believe in one's ability to reclaim the familiar from the banal, imho.

Widor's the best recessional, IMHO :-)

John, I would love to hear it either way. (And I see that I've misspelled Buxtehude...I'll go and fix that up right quick!) Cheers.

Patricia, you are spot on re: the BWV 565. I've heard it many a time (as we all have), but this was the first time it brought on an out-of-body experience. It was transcendent. And, of course, I agree with you about the Widor!
