Just curious.... what did you find (a) most interesting and (b) most = helpful in the POE, and to which ones did you go?   Hymns are my favorite pieces to play on the organ because they allow me to =   focus more attention on the sound of the organ. I use them especially = when I'm exploring the stops of an unfamiliar organ, or when I especially want = to relax and enjoy my favorite sounds. My favorite sound is the Principal = or Open Diapason 8. I use it for practicing larger works (Bach, Franck, = etc), and also for just "goofing around", aka improvising!   It's fun to put different sound on two keyboard and pedal and play the = bass on pedal, tenor left hand, and soprano and alto right hand. A good = exercise is to play tenor and alto together left hand. I think it's really interesting often when the tenor line is used for a solo on a trumpet or other reed.   My favorite big pieces are the Franck Chorales, Reger Toccata and Fugue in = d, various preludes and fugues of Bach, Buxtehude and Lubeck, as well as the sonatas of Mendelssohn and Rheinberger. Early French music is also = great fun since I've gotten interested in unequal temperament and think that the = 8, 4, 2-2/3, 2 and 1-3/5 (cornet) sound is really cool for the two and three part fugues, especially when it ends on an octave ( so I get to hear the = full chord of the cornet!).   What pieces are you working on? ... and, me being a stoplist junky, what =   kind of organ do you practice/play on? There are three that I enjoy the most in Gainesville FL, a 1970s 3m/40ish stop electro-pneumatic Casavant = at First Baptist, a 1manual 9 stop A.
