Description:
Virgil Fox (1912-1980) had been head of the organ department of the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, so, naturally this is where I went to school.

However, that was years before, and the school didn't even have a functioning organ when I first attended - except for some really "snazzy" Swedish "kit organs" that a single 8' flute on each of the two manuals and, just to be complete, another 8' stop in the pedal - with the flat pedalboard and only went to "D". I never saw or heard anything like it before.

Fortunately, through the grace of God, I have never seen or heard any such thing again...

This arrangement has an optional chime part. I think he must have meant REAL chimes, as the part is played by a second player.

I recorded the MIDI, played it back, and recorded it again while I played the chime part. It probably could have been better, but I lost interest quickly in this...

For the last "verse" you can hear the Harp on the Choir, which of course sounds like a vibraphone, since the resident harpist was not available when I made these "combined" recordings.
