The Moon Is Full

Halloween night and the moon is full.

What else would  would you expect to hear?

I took this with my old, Canon AE-1

E Power Biggs died in 1977, but his legacy lives on (much to the chagrin of Virgil Fox fans) as one of the greatest organists ever.

In the late 1980’s, I visited his grave at Mt. Auburn Cemetery, outside of Boston, MA and took a photo of his headstone, which  hangs on the wall in my office.

I know the funeral director who directed his funeral and he told me that at the request of Mrs. Biggs, not a note of music was played.

One of J. S. Bach’s most well-known pieces.  The Toccata & Fugue in D Minor.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
