    Scheidt - In Dulci Jubilo for sax quartet and organ

    I posted a brass and organ version of the Samuel Scheidt "In Dulci Jublio" last year. In the mean time I put together a saxophone and organ version for my friends of the Washington Saxophone Quartet. I use the CMB solo soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones as well as the GPO Full Organ with Haupt Mixture in this rendering.

    Cathedral saxophone music.

    What will they think of next.

    I think that worked really well. I'd like to hear that live.

    A nice arrangement and a good sound.

    Hi, Gary

    "Cathedral Saxophone Music"--hehe--I like Phil's descriptor for this.

    Sounds fine indeed. I always find it a bit tricky, mixing a pipe Organ in with other virtual instruments. The sounds tend to mesh together more than they actually do in real life. That happens a bit with this, but the effect is still nice.

    I like the visuals this conjurs also - picturing a nice pipe Organ with a group of Sax players close by looking like they got lost on their way to the Blue Note Bar.

    Thanks for the music, Gary.

    I have composed 4 or 5 pices for Organ both alone and with other instruments and everytime I do it, as Randy said,

    The sounds tend to mesh together more than they actually do in real life.

    This is why I have yet to post any Organ pieces.

    To my ears you got it down and this is a good example of how to do it right.

    Well done

    the sound of this combination, Gary. Any live recordings
    of the sax and organ work coming along?

    I picked the Haupt Mix because it does fit well with the reed instruments. The Washington sax Quartet is a smoother sound and therefore would require some different registration. But they are experienced in this and think this is a good fit as well.

    Ron,

    Glad that you enjoyed it. The fit with a real life performance of course needs to be tailored to the organ and acoustics of the hall. I am confident that it will fit together well when it comes down to it.

    David,

    Glad you enjoyed it. I am not sure when it will get performed. However, they are performing one of my Bach fugues at Wolftrap on Feb. 22. And there is another performance of my Gabrieli for brass and organ in March. So hopefully I can post these as it comes along.
