|I found my old Dr Stainer's American organ primer - yes!|
I decided to make another recording of the Smith Connoisseur. I was rifling through some of my old music and came across an arrangement of Mendelssohn's Andante Religioso for single manual.....so here it is.
or here is the YouTube Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSImwNbXr1s
You can hear the keys rattling, the bellows squeaking, the odd cipher, the coupler cutting in and out - pretty hilarious actually! Although, I always maintain that a good organist can accept what ever instrument is presented and find a way to get the best out of it.
Enjoy....and keep reeding folks.
