    Dynamite Organ

    Using Tom Hopkins' suggestions about expanding the GPO organ I set about creating a powerhouse organ piece. It is short, about 3 minutes and 10 seconds, but quite long enough at that energy level! In terms of power and energy, I doubt that I can ever surpass this. I am pleasantly exhausted from the energy spent in creating this piece. That was two days of high tension being released. Next up will probably be a meditative organ piece, begun earlier today. I guess it could safely be said that I enjoy writing for organ.

    This piece was constructed to be packed with energy, but not overly difficult to play. It is not so hard as it may sound. It is quite loud, and there is an explosion at bar 34 (1' 16") so be careful with the volume controls on your sound system! This piece may frighten small children and elderly grandmothers! The scorch playback will be awesomely putrid. It is essentialto listen to the mp3 playback.

    To look:

    To listen:
    Thor (mp3)

    Actually, I think if you follow the look link, you can select the mp3 playback at the bottom of the page.

    This is indeed HUGE, in more ways than one.... I thoroughly enjoyed that (and a true test for the quality of my speakers , but I think they withstood the test).

    Kind Regards

    Very dary and monumental, Richard!

    You really make use of the whole registry, playing on the so called, queen of instruments! Exciting!

    Full of contrasts and interesting harmonies!

    Well, thank you, Fred.

    I am amazed that you found this piece after three years! It is still one of my favorite compositions.

    Sorry I missed this earlier, Richard -- this one's
    what we used to call "dangerous to the bellows man"...
    so richly stopped, the poor fellow in the basement
    pumping them keels over from exhaustion.

    This one'd be a real ground-shaker, live!

    Best,
