I hadn't listened to = them for ages, so I got them out of the cupboard and put them on the turntable. Firstly Bach's Fantasia & Fugue in C minor BWV 537 played on the IV/87 = E.M. Skinner/Reuter (1993) Organ in St John's Lutheran Church, Allentown, Pennsylvania USA during a recital Chris gave there last year. It is well played with excellent rhythmic control, clear phrasing and musicianship. A =   fine performance indeed, and it is not difficult to see why Chris won = first prize. The second recording is the Andante Sostenuto from Widor's = Symphonie Gothique Op.70, given a relaxed, reflective interpretation which takes us = on a short journey, away from the hurly-burly of our mortal existence. Highly =   recommended!

The Lutheran Church here prefers pipe organs but it is a very = small denomination in this state with only a tiny handful of congregations.The Anglican Cathedral in Perth (Capital City) has three organs, and the Basilica of St Patrick in Fremantle has two one of which is the largest Church organ in Australia with 8 divisions and about 160 or so ranks (I haven't counted them as there are a lot of ranks of mixtures. Anyone who wants further details of it can find it on the Organ Historic Trust of Australia Web Site - OHTA at Vicnet..)..   Uniting Church 20% Anglican Church 38% Roman Catholic Church 22% Church of Christ <1% Baptist 1% In Theatre or Hall 6% Christian Scientist 1% Private homes 6% Lutheran 2% Free Reformed Church 3% The Church of Christ and Baptist Churches go for electronic organs in this =   state.

Same thing was done with accordions! Dennis Steckley For I am possessed of a cat, surpassing in beauty, from whom I take occasion to bless Almighty God.
