WARNING - this piece is VERY emotional! You can TURN IT UP, since it isn't loud. You'll get more passion and pain if you do...

I have NO idea what this piece is, or who composed it, or what organ I played it on!!!

I THINK I played it last October or November, and I THINK this is from the "First Organ Book" of Marchand.

I THINK this on the organ of St. Michel, but it MIGHT be on the St. Omer organ. I say that since I was planning on using St. Omer for some of this music. I think I did, but I can't remember. I don't think it's St. Max, as the echo is too short for that - although the speed of the tremulant sounds about right for that.

But I'll tell you a story about this piece, and you can draw your own conclusions...

However, since you only get 2000 "spaces", you'll have to read the first comment for the story... :-)

The piece is by Nicholas Lebègue (c. 1631-1702), who was organist at the Church of St. Merry in Paris. I wanted to attach the piece but couldn't, but here is the link for all his organ works:ègue,_Nicolas-Antoine

I'm pretty surprised, as I didn't think old Nick was as emotional as this... ;-)

THANKS to Hoofdwerk for firmly identifying the organ.

The story, however, remains unchanged... ;-)
