Just over a year ago, after 37 consecutive “Sunday Pipes” posts, I took a break from posting weekly looks into the King of Instruments.
The pipe organ has always fascinated me and I even did some study on construction and theory back in the day. Currently, I listen to as much organ music as I do by contemporary bands, such as my current favorite, Blackberry Smoke which is an interesting combination, don’t you think?
A few of readers mentioned they missed the “Pipes” series and personally, I missed searching and showcasing them,
So, without further adieu, I give you, Sunday Pipes #38 and encourage you to use the search box on the Right margin to search for previous “Sunday Pipes”
From the video: Diane Bish plays her arrangement of A Mighty Fortress on the 117 Rank Ruffatti Organ of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale. From Miss Bish: “I begin with the power of the stately hymn as played on the horizontal trumpets of the organ. Then I break into almost a dance-like section which, to me, expresses the joy that we can know in knowing God as our stronghold and sure defense in anything we have to go through in life. And so this is my setting of A Mighty Fortress for organ.”
