Meditation for Saturday


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Meditation 130 for Organ takes a while to completely unfold (about 4:28), but it is also very much directed toward the last :30, so the wait is, I hope, worth the effort. It is sort of a full-spectrum recording with the stereo separation quite wide to give the feeling of a very large hall or church/cathedral, so let it ring with good volume on your speakers or earphones or however you listen to it. (Don’t listen in your car!) Performed on my Johannus “Vivaldi” 370. ... The organ score can be found here:

Have a peaceful Saturday.

Lovely, as always
It does take awhile to develop, but you are right - it is worth the wait. I could see this being played as visuals of grand mountains and spectacular waterfalls go by.

Seriouly? Was that 4 minutes?
It kept me spellbound and felt much shorter.

This has simpler harmonies than some of your piano pieces, and it sticks to one key a lot longer. That's probably appropriate for the idea of a meditation.

I got a big smile on my face with that swell in measure 24. With all the fake software organs around, it is soooooo good to hear an instrument that actually behaves like a real organ should. (On the other hand, the decrescendo on the final chord got some help from your recording software, not?)

The sound...
...on good headphones is astounding...

I don't know if you used just a touch of compression to get the sound both very natural and very silky, but whatever it is, it sounds terrific...

You've managed to get a piece of music to sound both intimate and very big...

You've also managed to compose something on an organ, with lovely organ swells, that doesn't sound like soap opera music...

I think you're the great counterargument to the nature versus nurture debate, Paul: I think you started out with good sense and good taste, and you have also worked very hard to hone and sharpen both...

Listening on Monday but it wasn't lost in translation, Paul :-) There is something elemental about a pipe organ. It can be ethereal one minute and earth shaking the next. Lovely recording. Thanks, as always.
