Thanks John T.

Sadly, I'm far from well - I have moderate heart failure on top of everything else. Makes life "interesting"

Every Blessing

Hi Tony,

It's unusual to hear 'tremolo' with a piece like this. Years ago I went with a friend to the Church at Great Mills where they had just had the pipe organ 'restored'. This had a lovely 'vibrato' for all the hymns the organist played, and after the service I went to speak to the organist to tell her how much I had enjoyed her playing .. particularly with that 'vibrato' on it, and asked how she had done that. Her response was that it was a 'Church Pipe Organ' and should not have had any 'vibrato' on it. Nobody could find out why it was doing it, and she said it was getting to her that much that she was considering resigning as Church Organist.

But I enjoyed your playing of this piece, particularly with the 'vibrato'.

Thanks Hugh

The whole issue of tremulant/vibrato is a minefield. Bach is recorded as using Tremulants. Many church organs do in fact have Tremulants - but the amount they're used varies, and is often limited just to solo combinations. The modern trend is for very mild trems on classical organs for some reason.

I use whatever sounds are available on the organ I'm playing, and that seem to be right to me for the particular piece (and situation).

Every Blessing

Love it. I like the tremolo too. What I was taught more or less is that tremolo is fine if you don't have singers using vibrato as well. For solo stuff it's fine.

I don't care either way really. Sounds great!
