Uploaded by: Aida (Ida as in Idaho) (09/02/18)
Composer: J.S.Bach, arr. V.Fox
Sample Producer: CLR Resources
Sample Set: FCCLA: Skinner - First Congregational Church, Los Angeles
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Romantic
Description:
I have a very personal relationship with this piece and 'O, Tod' (O, Death) from Brahms's 'Vier Ernste Lieder' (4 Serious Songs). Both express how ardently one can yearn for that final hour.

I was inspired by Virgil Fox's recording at the Wanamaker Store. My dear friend Angus_David's upload of last week was inspired on earlier recordings. Hence the huge difference. For comparison: http://www.contrebombarde.com/concerthall/music/31170

I recorded this on my revoiced FCCLA Skinner organ with later additions, incl. the 1969 / 95 stop Schlicker.

It took me ages to finish the registration of the ending (without using a GenCresc). Don't know if it was worth waiting, but at least I'm happy with it now.
