Sound Samples

Music

The following are samples taken from the dedication recital for my organ. Barbara Burton is the organist and my dad plays trumpet on Wachet auf. I think the samples with reverb sound great but I've included both if you prefer the straight recording.

The following is a sample of a short passage played on each manual stop individually. I adjust my position on the manual to keep all the stops at the same pitch. I play the passage on the Bourdon then Montre then Prestant and then Doublette:

The following is a C major chord played with CCC and GGG in the Soubasse which gives an equivalent resultant of a 32' stop.

Music

The following are samples of me trying to play bits and pieces.

SampleThe first 3:15 of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor. I can't play the diminished triplet part so I inserted a bit of a recording from St. Sulpice (1:45-1:56). You can barely hear the difference (ha ha). The first part is with full organ. The fugue is with Bourdon and Doublette.
