Composer: Bach, J. S.
Sample Set: Bologna, Zanin 1962 - still in production, beta version
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
For three weeks, here in Lombardy, not only participation in Mass has been prevented but also the celebration of baptisms, weddings, funerals and all other moments in the life of our ecclesial community.
Since yesterday these prohibitions have extended to all of Italy: and for many it is not even possible to give the last farewell to their loved ones.
Psalm 136 came back to me on Sunday evening: "on the rivers of Babylon we sat there crying at the memory of Zion".
The well-known version of Bach is veiled with a profound nostalgia but it is also pervaded by a great and confident sweetness and it is with me in this not easy moment.

I used the beta version of a sample set I'm still working on; at the Great Flutes of 8 and 4, at Swell Oboe, Gamba and Chimney Flute 4; at Pedal Bourdon 8.
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
