Composer: Wilbur Held 1914 - 2015
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Laurenskerk - Main Organ - 1973 Marcussen & Son
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Modern
Two arrangements of spirituals written by Wilbur held, stitched together to form a whole (with a slight homage to VF).

I was thinking: I wonder if Marcussen & Son's Laurenskerk organ would work for some American Spirituals. Had they thought about that? With some work on various registrations and the Laurenskerk "trems" I think I may have found something that I hadn't expected.

I played this arrangement on a 1963, 46 rank Austin at a church service. I think the Laurenskerk stood up beautifully to the test against the Austin!
