Ian #14 Didn't know many people were familiar with De-Grigny. I certainly wasn't until a year or so ago. The Gloria especially just grabs me. Got the sheet music for it and learning to play it, but it is HARD.

Toccata and Fugue in D is probably one of the best known of Bach's organ works. Its been used in everything from horror movies to just about anything else.

Like most of his stuff it is not as easy as it sounds. You need 10 fingers on each hand and an extra foot would probably come in useful too. There are a couple of really beautiful renditions of the De-Grigny on You tube.

Yes, it's pretty much impossible to make five choices and not keep thinking, ' oh, how could I have missed that '. My choices, although great sounds, may seem fairly unimaginative, but they all have associations that evoke memories for me. Music is so often a key link to the past.
