    Liszt - Adagio for organ

    This quiet reflective piece, more widely known in its piano version as his Consolation no. 4 in D flat, was transcribed for organ by Liszt.
    I used GPO organ flute stops throughout.

    Beautiful, Lad! Old Franz knew how to write and you did a great job with your interpretation!

    I love the "chuffy" sound of the flute stop. Perhaps your file could benefit from the application of some "hall" reverb to give it a "churchy" or maybe a "cathedral" sound.

    Thanks Larry, comments appreciated. I had applied some "church" reverb., but possibly erred on the side of caution! However I will continue to experiment, and hopefully come up with something worthwhile.

    Nicely done, Eugene. I have to go with Larry on more reverb. Try an IR with a good hang time. I think you'll hear it take on a whole new character. Once again, well done.

    Beautifully done, Eugene!

    I would go with my colleagues to add just a bit more reverb; in particular, I think Bill is on the mark about the "hang time".

    Careful, though, not much, not much! This is quite well rendered as is, and it would be easy to lose the clarity that makes it so.

    Best,
