    Afternoon Trifle

    I did this this afternoon to amuse myself while doing laundry. It's called Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring from Bach's Cantata 147. I know somebodies going ask which organ I used. It is Organ B with Full Organ and Hauptwerk All Stops alternated. Enjoy.

    Jesu, Bleibet Meine Freude

    Thumbs up Re: Afternoon Trifle

    Very nicely done! Sounds as if you are really in a church setting or a grand hall! Nice ... very nice. I don't understand why no one else is listening but hey, I liked it very much!

    Re: Afternoon Trifle

    As a Bach lover I wish to congratulate you on a very musical realisation of this great piece. How do you get the strings to sound so "real"?. As a new user I would like to get similar results! well done.

    I enjoyed your Bach effort and the organ sounds very convincing. Isn't it amazing how uplifting his music is? Imagine the difficulty he had in his time getting his music down on paper and all of the publishing problems. If had GPO, or some other sample program, there's no telling how much more music he could have written.

    Might have even had one or two more children (on top of the 21 he had) too.

    Good Work..........

    Thanks. I was just messing around and had the score for Jesu and thought what the hey. The more I got into it...well. I intentionally kept the dymanics flat to give a congregational feel.
    Thanks again,

    Eugene,
    Thanks for the comment,
    For the strings I used the "Lush" set. Legato was set at 115 percent and on Ambience I tweaked the "wet" setting up a notch.
    Thanks again,
    Val

    John,
    Thanks. I really love the organ(s) in GPO. The are amazing. I can just see Bach in a dark room with the glow of a computer monitor lighting his face as he is whipping out some massive orchestral suite or fugue. Just think, he wouldn't have to pay the town drunk to pump the bellows on the pipe organ.
    Thanks again,
    Val

    Thanks. I happen to have that score laying around. I'll make that a project for the near future. I'm working on a Handel piece right now.
