I was going to record this last August. That is, until I listened to Wolfram Syre's masterful rendition of it. I was playing the 3e Doublet part on a flute (both hands), while he played it with the left hand (1/16th notes) on a small reed which made the notes crystal clear, and I discovered that the flute hid a multitude of sins involving sloppy fingering! Problem was, I liked his registration better!! So I practiced and practiced and finally got it recorded at Christmas and now I've had time to process and upload the video.

Thank you to everyone who has recorded this piece. Contrebombarde is a great place to inspire us and give us multiple visions for interpreting the music we want to play.

I've loved this piece since I was a kid. Dr. Ouchterlony played it many times at Timothy Eaton Memorial United Church in Toronto on the 5 manual Casavant, and in the last Grand jeu he made a great production of using ALL FIVE MANUALS!! That includes not just the Solo division, but the BOMBARDE as well! Imagine that.
