Playing a bittersweet gig in about an hour


Recommended Posts

My wife's uncle passed away on Sunday and the funeral is today. The family asked me to play the organ. My classical chops aren't up by a long shot, but I'm pretty sure I can get through a dozen or so hymns.


The organ is an Allen, one of the Renaissance models, three manuals and I don't know how many electronic ranks. Of all the keyboard input devices available, I've always been the most comfortable on an AGO spec organ console. When I sat down to it a few days ago it felt like home. The keyboard action, while not nearly as stiff as a tracker, has a familiar firmness that I wish all synth action boards had. (Well, the old Minimoog did have it. I miss Pratt-Read)


So, if you happen to hear a whisper of "How Great Thou Art" in your mind's ear, it's me. I'm stomping the crescendo pedal for the fourth verse.



9 Moog things, 3 Roland things, 2 Hammond things and a computer with stuff on it
