Thanks Andreas. BWV 655 really requires a lot more pedal technique than I have as yet, it's probably the hardest organ piece I have done so far. Maybe one day I could play this flawlessly... one fine day..... For now, it has to do.
I really can imagine that and I have to underline again, that I admire your ability to play organ. (I would have the opportunity now to play organ here in our little village, btw. The only problem is I don´t have enough time even to play piano, not mention guitar and even more not to mention organ.
) Your performance is really absolutely enjoyable!
I'm also not convinced of the registration for BWV 721. I opted for the Terts instead of the Quint but I agree it is a bit penetrating
at times. It's sometimes difficult to choose registrations on an instrument without an independent set of pedal registers, and to avoid every recording sounding the same I sometimes pick something unusual. And this one is an odd duck anyway, I already play the LH an
octave higher as written because otherwise it overlaps too much with the coupled pedal (a common trick on the organ, BTW).
That´s interesting. The organ in the church I play our school-services has an independent pedal register. It also has for the two manuals. I only suppose that for a Trio like this the upper manual would be too silent, even if you use all registers, but may be I´m wrong here.
