Beyond the pipe organ’s own resources, the sounds of additional trumpets, trombones and horns lend an extra dimension to the sonic spectrum.

Comments [1]

Since I have long used Bach's Komm Heiliger Geist in this evening's Pipedreams as a voluntary, I found it especially enjoyable.

The hour's program was quite interesting, including the 3 Rapp interpreted chorale preludes of stated uncertain authorship by Bach.

A headset and laptop at last turn out to be my method of choice for listening to Pipedreams.
