Let the Organ Thunder??
Liturgical Organ Playing
from 1600 - 2000

A German organist from 1730 would feel pretty restricted playing for a modern, English service, as would a French organist from the same period. And, let it be said, an English organist of the early 19th century.

This talk follows how playing requirements and expectations have evolved (or devolved?) across the centuries, and fetches suggestions from modern French and German practices.

This talk lasts about 60 minutes, or longer if required. All necessary equipment (projector, screen, sound system) is provided.
