But have you also looked at it as a quiet, improvisation and tried it on an 8' Flute, playing with a great deal of improvisatory freedom? You might enjoy it that way.   There are some wonderfully musical, imaginative Pachelbel recordings by Nigel Allcoat that bring Pachelbel to light in a marvelous way. They are done on an incredibly beautiful Aubertin organ in France.   D. Case Pacific Union College   P.S. I would hate to tell you what my spell checker just suggested as the correct spelling of "Aubertin!"

I am also partial = to his Fugue in D-minor... a saucy, syncopated theme that builds to a fine = loud end - Grunenwald - Procession and Toccata from the 2nd suite. The procession starts soft, builds to loud, back to soft... very effective. The toccata = is a bit of a finger-twister, but fun all the same. Also see his Dyptique Liturgique for a very effective Prelude/Postlude pair - de Maleingreau - Final from the Suite op. 18... again, a little longer, but a fun piece..... - Hendrie - Toccata from Tombeau de Marcel Dupr=E9 - Guyon - Fugue (from Prelude and Fugue) - any of the manyDavid Johnson Trumpet tunes/Processionals (recently re-released complete in a collection... cheap at $19.95 USD)   I know as soon as I send this off, I'll remember more, but these come immediately to mind.   Best,   Jonathan Orwig     --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free.
