Make Recitals Great Again

From my “Make Recitals Great Again” recital. It was 95 degrees outside and I don’t know what the temperature was inside the church under those 500 watt flood lights but this was the stickiest, sweatiest and most difficult recitals I have ever played. My fingers were so sweaty that they were sliding off the keys.

This has always been a difficult organ to record because the swell and solo divisions are located in a chamber on the other side of the chancel, the great is located right behind my head and the choir division is installed up in the balcony and consequnetly often sounds out of sync. For this recital I placed the recorder in the middle of the church amongst the people and that seems to have equalized it.
