Sample Producer: Paramount Organ Works
Sample Set: Paramount 450
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Hymn
God Leads Us Along (1903) George A. Young, composer (I was not able to find any biographical info on this composer)
He Leadeth Me (1862) by Joseph Gilmore (1834-1918) Professor of Logic at Rochester University, New York.

Based on arrangement by: Paul Mickelson (1927-2001) Noted arranger, conductor, pianist and organist. Paul was organist for the Billy Graham Crusades from 1950-1957. This is from "Let's Get ORGANized with Paul Mickelson," which was both an Lp album, and a sheet music folio. (Both out of print, but available from time to time on Ebay and Amazon Marketplace) Our friend, here on CB, Ken H. reminded me of this folio.... and I realized I had it in my collection, but never had learned anything from it.

When looking at the sheet music and listening to Paul's recording, it is obvious that he did some double recording to get in the runs on the harp..... since it was a two manual Baldwin Organ, and certain sounds held over while the harp was playing, which would't have been possible.
I was able to overcome this problem, by using the sostenuto control available on the Paramount, and playing the harp runs up on the 3rd manual. It did take 9 trys to get a "good" recording!
