    Raymond,

    From the very first bars I knew I liked this music!
    I have never heard anything by Widor so far so this was a new discovery!

    I searched for more of his music and I'm impressed.
    The video was also great to watch.

    You did a great job and I hope you took a good rest after it...

    Many thanks!!!

    I also checked out Widor and listened to a number of this one being played live and you captured the feel of all of them except one.

    The one that made the most sense to me was the one played in a smaller setting that didn't have the huge reverb that most catherdrals have. I could hear all of the intricate notes being played in the higher registers.

    Still a great piece you have presented here.

    Well done

    Yudit and Ron,

    it was pleasure to work on this. Quite easy to copy the score from the original. On my equipment the reverb is rather modest and all the notes of those fast passages are clearly noticeable. I also noticed that a lot of this got lost in the compression to Mp3, not to speak of the poorer quality in the "movie". In just plain wave format it is GREAT.

    I sincerely hope that Gary releases the new Pipe Organ with the Aria player very soon.

    .... and after all those notes I had a long walk - 7 miles.

    Where did you find those? I searched the Net and all I've got were Youtubes with very poor quality.

    Thank you for a fine job on this interpretation of the
    Widor, Raymond -- very well done. A giant amongst
    organ composers, he is not heard so much as he
    deserves outside the community of organ enthusiasts.

    I, too, will look forward to hearing this on the new
    Garritan pipe organ when it comes along... though I
    must say I found this recording quite, quite good, too!

    Perhaps you will consider tackling some of his truly
    superb organ symphonies?

    My best,



    David

    Sound great. You did a perfect job on it.

    I'm going to have to actually go hear a live cathedral performance some day. A local church has a large pipe organ but not the acoustics.
