This is not a proper upload for listening to.
It is a smartphone ringtone for downloading.
Kind of a New Year's present to the hall members.

When I bought my first smartphone, I noticed there were hundreds of ringtones you could choose from, all equally bad or uninteresting.
Then again: IF there was a nice one, everybody around you started using it right away, so you never knew if your own phone was ringing or somebody elses.

So I put some thought in it.
An organists ringtone should be classy an sophisticated, and CERTAINLY NOT the all and ever present d-moll toccata intro played on a synthesizer.

So I played in my own ringtone, the first twelve bars of the g-moll fugue by Bach and loaded it in my phone.

The first time the phone went off with it I was playing a doubles tennis match and the g-moll fugue started blasting away happily, perfectly audible all over the court.

One of my opponents, who used to fly big planes around the world for one reason or another, hit his shot right into the fence.”What the hell is THAT,” he cried in disgusted horror.

My partner that day, an Oxford man and early music specialist, who knew of my musical abberation, spoke deftly: “That, my boy, is an ORGANISTS ringtone!” He was quite right!

So I thought perhaps some of you would like to have it too.
You would be the second one in the world with this ringtone.
Also: if enough people use it, IF you hear a phone go off with it and it's not yours, then you know not only have you spotted another organist, but a concert hall member as well. You can then embrace each other.

Just download it and copy it to your phone, normally in the downloads directory, then in the audio menu navigate to the ringtone section and choose it.

The way you have to do it is depending on brand and software version, but the phones all more or less work the same way. Consult your manual or ask any twelve-year-old. He'll fix it for you in a jiffy!
