How many uploads of this piece can the concert hall tolerate per month before "565 fatigue" sets in? Not many I'd wager, and I see that Master EdoL uploaded a splendid rendition just 11 days ago, so it's not looking good for me :-(

Still, I'm going to upload mine now before I change my mind again. This recording was actually made all the way back in September 2015, after just seven months of playing the organ - this was the first piece I learned. I haven't posted it until now because as I've grown in skill, I always intended to record a new, improved version. The piece is now too far gone from performance readiness to invest the time to do this, so I've decided to embrace the "human factor" of music performance and post this imperfect rendition. I hope you enjoy it.
