A piece by J S Bach. Needs no introduction.

This is my 500th upload. Woo! I thought I'd go back to where it all started - for all us - a copy of Hauptwerk with only St Anne's Mosley.

My Hauptwerk journey started at the end of 2005 a couple of months after I started playing the organ. I discovered James Pressler's site Virtually Baroque and was hooked. Some time in 2006 I started playing around with Hauptwerk - back when the free trial had a beep every few seconds. I played with it through 2007 but it wasn't until 2008 that I connected it to a digital piano and started using it properly, using the sustain pedal as the Swell! I went a number of years not using it as I had a Linux computer when my PC with Hauptwerk on blew up. I then got back into it some years later (then another PC blew up with it!) and since 2016 have built a console and played and recorded many pieces - a lot more played than I have confidence to record! But it has been a fun journey. And this PC so far hasn't blown up...!!

It was hard coming back to this set after several years away. So dry and primitive sounding but it gave me many hundreds of hours of enjoyment until 2016 when I upgraded Hauptwerk and got some new samplesets, first some Cracov St John then Our Lady Carmel Skinner, before achieving my dream of Caen (those who know me know it is kind of personal to me as it is the first big French organ I stood and looked at in wonder near where my parents lived so always wanted the set!).

This is one of the first pieces I played on Hauptwerk way back then at the start of my organ life and things haven't gone the way I'd hoped for various reasons but here is to another year and hopefully to another 15 years and more of Hauptwerk and organ playing - there have been times due to various health things when I am surprised I've even made it thus far...

Thanks to all who have listened, commented and helped me over the past nearly 6 years on here.

Hope you enjoy and Happy New Year!
