The prelude shows the GPO Organ in a very different light than the Postlude. This piece is meant to be contemplative and conducive to preparing one for worship. It uses GPO instrumentation: Pipe Organ: Flutes, Cornet & Prinzipal. For those of you who have sub-woofers or monitors with a good low end, check out the last chord of the piece. I essentially made my own 16' Flutes stop for the pedals by detuning the existing Flute sound -12 semitones, then coupled it on the same midi channel with the existing Flutes (8') sound...very realistic result.
This rendering was streamed directly to .wav using GPO Studio Streamer, then converted to mp3. The only plugin used is the Ambience reverb (Church preset).
I'm anticipating that Oxford University Press will publish them. But as that usually takes a while, and since during the interim I own all copyrights and permissions, if you'd like I'll email you the .pdf files for the prelude and postlude...no charge...I'll get my rewards when I pass on (and when my Oxford royalty checks come.)
Glenn, Thank you very much. I’ll be looking forward to seeing it and hearing it live on our new Allen organ. It would have been nice to hear the live performance you referred to in a previous post. Pittsburg is just a little far this time of year when we are terribly busy with spring sales in our family nursery.
Thanks...very kind comments all. John, I couldn't agree more with you, how amazing it is to see the varied directions everyone has gone. A tribute to the creativeness of the group and the versatility of GPO.
