Sunday Pipes

Sunday’s are made for organ music. It is probably best appreciated in a liturgical setting,  but that would leave lots of folks out.

This may be the first of  a new, regular feature that I’ll call “Sunday Pipes”

The pipe organ is arguably the most difficult instrument to play as you are required to read three different lines of music simultaneously.  One for your right hand, one for your left and one for your feet.  This six and a half minute piece composed by Dietrich Buxtehude, “Praeludium en Sol Mineur”  and performed by the late Rene Saorgin is a beautiful example of what that looks and sound like.

Volume up.
