Sample Producer: Organ Expressions
Sample Set: Schantz Organ (1969)  
Genre: Hymn
Description:
On Organ Expressions' website there is a recording of Professor Willis Harrison playing the Schantz in 1997, shortly before his death, called "Revival Medley." http://www.organexpressions.com/audios/revival_medley_schantz_harrison.mp3
It is a medley of several evangelical hymn tunes played in a style you don't hear in churches much these days..... I call it the "Evangelical Style of Hymn Playing." It's not for congregational singing but for Preludes, Offertories, Hymn Introductions, Interludes and the like.
I've put my own arrangement together (with some of the same sort of style) using three of the same hymns:
He Lives (Ackley)
Since Jesus Came Into My Heart (McDaniel)
He Keeps Me Singing (Sweetest Name)

I've tried to show some of the "evangelical" colors of this instrument including the: Zimbelstern, Chimes, Festival Trumpet and plenty of tremulants......found on all three manual divisions!

These are hymns I grew up hearing, singing and playing in the Baptist church.... so its going back to my roots. My mom will love these hymns, of course, and there were two women who really enjoyed it when I played the chimes.... so Karen E. and Virginia S, the bells are for you!
