Morning

For those of you who have been following the blog, you may recall a couple of weeks ago I was asked to play at the language school graduation event (link here).

It’s a miserable day today, so I thought I would post a link to the video I used. The music is Edvard Grieg’s Morning, transcribed for piano (unfortunately the church piano is way overdue for a tuning – sorry), and the text is from Psalm 19. All the pictures are local to Lenvik and Senja. If you have a fast enough connection you can watch in HD (click the ‘cog’ symbol  at the bottom right of the picture):

I’ve also done a quick test recording of the organ in Finnsnes church, mainly so that I could hear the balance of the stops (it’s very hard to know how it sounds when sat at the console). Whilst it’s not a definitive recording (still some wrong notes to fix and interpretation to improve), it turned out OK, so here is J.S. Bach’s choral prelude ‘‘Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele” BWV 654.

I hope you enjoy it them.

  1. Sounds a lot like the organ at Prince George. Except this organ has a very fast tremulant. The bass notes of the Rohrfloyt sound identical to the Rohrflute at Prince George.
