Toccata and Fugue . This is played , by Kurt Ison at the Sydney town hall pipe organ. It was on November the 29th of 2002. The original composer is Johann Sebastian Bach. I have allways been partial to organs. My styles are flexible. Some wurlitzer theatre organ music, depending on what it is. The favourite will allways be " Hammond blues ". For example ' Leon Kuijpers ' ' Joey De Francesco '.

I am keen on the church pipe organs, predominantly because of their unique sound and technology. Also you have to admit, they are truly a majestic and grand piece of equipment. To summarise, i also respect the people who have the skill to play these imposing instruments.

The " Toccata and Fugue " being played by Karl Richter. Just absolutely stunning and awesome. On the track at 9:15, how Karl lifts his hands and clenches them, is an interesting effect. It looked impressive the way he finished playing.

Stone you are a man of true character! I watched a show on discovery about how long it took a company to take a church pipe organ apart to clean each pipe and reassemble it. A real work of art.

I love the sound of these instruments as well. The church I belong to has a historic pipe organ and I am very good friends with the music director. Here is a quote from my churches web site describing the organ

A highlight of the church's music program is our beloved historic Roosevelt pipe organ. Purchased from another congregation in 1880, the organ was built by the brothers Hilborne and Frank Roosevelt in New York City It was moved from our Paterson sanctuary and installed in our then new sanctuary in Wyckoff, NJ in 1961. The Peragallo Organ Company of Paterson added additional pipes, a new three manual console, a trumpet en Chamade and MIDI. The organ has grown to 28 ranks (over 1700 pipes) and is considered one of the finest instruments in the northern New Jersey area.

I am amazed how the really good players can play the bass notes with their feet and I'm impressed by my friend every time I hear him...
