It has been mentioned that this is a relatively easy toccata for Easter. I agree with "relatively" because for many it will be easy to learn, but for others there are challenges like the almost non-stop set of 16th note sextuplets; and then there are the fifths played in the pedal ... not difficult, but it takes two feet!

Even though I think I'm playing it too fast, it isn't as fast as indicated on the score, 1/4 note = 92. There are only 41 measure of music in this piece, a good portion of which is repeated.

Because of trigger finger syndrome in my right hand I still need more practice to make it a lot smoother, but I think the current results is fairly good and pleasing to the ear, especially with a good set of headphones. I use AKG Q701s.

A word of caution ... this recording uses the 32' Principal, but because of the use of fifths in the pedal, including one from low C, a 64' acoustic sound is produced. This might damage speakers if played too loud.
