    This nifty little thing from the Orgelbuchlein took me an awful lot of time to get recorded. It's not quite as perfect as I'd like it to be but it will have to do for now, I'm a bit fed up with it and want to move on :roll: I hope you like it anyway.

    Bach - Orgelbüchlein - BWV 607 - Vom Himmel kam der Engel Schar

    The title means something like 'From Heaven came the Swarm of Angels'.

    Woah, was that fast played! :shock:

    Yes, the swarm of angles came down to earth almost as dive bomb :D
    Just a little joke, it sounds very well that way to me. A shame that I almost can't hear the pedal notes on my monitor boxes. I really need a subwoofer in my office.

    I don't know what an awful lot of time is in your case - seems so that you needed it to play more than twice... But the devoted time counts out, really virtuos playing.

    Thank you much for sharing!

    Well I must have spent some 5 hours total (over two sessions) just repeating this one until at last it was free of major slips. Must have played it hundreds of times, or perhaps it feels just like that, to a point that my right pinky (which sustains the melody line) started to get a bit flat and painful. It's a real tricky little bastard piece, actually quite a good LH etude, with RH thrown in at some points to share in the fun. The fast tempo seems to be as it should go, otherwise it sounds to much like an excercise.

    Wow, I can see why you say this is a good LH etude. My poor wrists would be screaming after five hours.
    This sounded good. Very steady and well balanced.

    Trying to make a career as an organ virtuoso? :D. Really nice played and not so filled by reverb. Not recorded in the reverbic church?

    Nope, in the regular church. But with added reverb as usual. If it sounds less reverby than some it could be because of the lighter registration. I don't think pieces like this can be done at all in the basilica.
