Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Experimental
This is something different. It might require getting used to, it certainly requires patience.

This is an attempt at using the pipe organ, in this case the Holzhey organ, in experimental music.

As the name implies, there are three movements that have no title (yet) but perhaps a description:

1. "Ecce civitas sancti tui facta est deserta" from the Gregorian chant 'rorate coeli': Behold, your holy city has become a desert

2. The kings of the east follow the star

3. Chant of the angels: "Puer natus est nobis!"

The (very remote) inspiration was a video of Messiaen improvising on 'puer natus est'

What do you think about this experiment? Please let me know :-)

A final remark: Due to the 60MB upload limit here on CB, I had to compress the audio to 192kBit/s. The YouTube video has the full audio quality of 320kBit/s.
