Thank you for that encouragement. I'm getting used to being a widower, so my domestic apparel takes centre stage at present. I'm kept busy music wise, with current chapel duties. Athough the smallest of Ringway organs, it is packed with samples, plus it's coupled to the chapel piano. That is fun. It's more than a gimmick, as it's brilliant for keeping the singing tempo going. I do have fun. Folks unaccustomed to the phantom piano, have quite a shock when it suddenly starts playing without a pianist sat at it, more so if I bring the piano in during a hymn or song.

Hi all, It's been a while since posting on here. I have recently fulfilled an engagement with classical organ, which hadn't really been my flavour of the month for many a year. I'm quite chuffed as I so enjoyed it. Reporting restrictions won't permit public broadcasting of any of the sound content, but I can do something even better. I can let you hear the lovely lady performing, who is very much my current inspiration, I listen to her performances, which beggar belief at just how fabulous she is. This isn't modesty. I'm not envious, because her performances lift me above that. Otherwise I would be. I do hope you enjoy. Stereo earphones or good hi-fi needed, please. Please make up your own mind. Even now, I've got goosebumps listening to that. If someone can pronounce her name, please.... If I get a like, I'll post two more. She can use couplers as here, or not. She can't see her feet! Try playing pedals wearing her tunic!!! This isn't the performance that I was going to post, but it's her footwork on this that demonstrates her total masterly capability. I have painful memories, as I sprained my ankle practicing this piece of music, getting my foot jammed between E flat & F sharp. It was a plaster cast job. How does she do this? PS. Her name on You tube, Schwester Mihovila Tenžera, which translates from German as Sister Mihovila Tenžera.

Hi Helen I've never heard that before. "organ - comes from Latin organum, from Greek oganon, "implement, instrument, tool"; it was first a very general term, but was then used for "wind instrument" and "functional part of the body." See also related terms for wind instrument".

Whilst down in Coventry last weekend we went to an organ recital in Holy Trinity Church on Saturday afternoon. Very good it was too, a good mix of music.
