    "Exercise #64" for GPO full organ

    All,

    Here is my "Exercise #64 In C Minor" featuring the smokin' pipes of the GPO full organ plus a melodic overlay by the GPO flute solo V.

    Larry, you are a genius.

    I swear...sometime you'll be the next Bach. Maybe a decade or two after you're dead.

    I loved that piece!!!!! It was very complex and mathematical and it was very pleasing to listen to: a combonation I've been working EXTREMELY hard to accomplish. You are simply amazing.

    Thank you, Mr. Chris.

    Keep working hard and you'll be composing circles around me in no time at all.

    Smokin is right! Bravo! I've already used the Phantom of the Opera analogy so I'll have grope for something else to compare this to. Ah! How about Son of Phantom of the Opera. No? Seriously, an other incredible piece, Larry.

    I'm very fond of church organs but don't often get the chance to hear them live....only births, weddings and funerals! I think the GPO organ is great....I wouldn't need a better one.

    This is good though Larry; I very much liked the change of mood at 1:39....almost turns into a fairground ride. This is actually a rather classy piece of writing......just when I thought the rest were luck......What all 100 odd???

    What happened to the other 63 excercises in C minor? Perhaps you can post them sometime.........

    Keep 'em coming.

    As you know, Frank, at 01:39 or thereabouts, I simply changed from C minor to C Major.

    I have written about one-hundred exercises and studies for organ (not all in C minor). They are all luck. I couldn't begin to tell you how an "exercise" differs from a "study".

    Thanks for listenin', old chap.

    Best regards,

    Thumbs up Re: "Exercise #64" for GPO full organ

    Wow Larry what you can achieve is simply amazing! Love this but do you have something in a half size organ? That was a bit too heavy for a morning exercise program.
