Good morning all, to those who's days begin. :)

Johann Gottfried Walther.
Complete Organ Music.
CD V. Chorale settings IV.

Simone Stella plays on a Francesco Zanin organ 2006.

While sipping my coffee, the fourth track makes me sit up properly. What a magnificent rendition of "Herr Gott, dir loben alle wir". If one would not know that the organ is from 2006, we might assume it is as old as the composer. I really love the chorale settings, and could listen to them endlessly without fatigue. The recording is magnificent; How beautiful the notes come out, as the Bordone 16 from the Hauptwerk, and the Subbasso 16, plus Trombone 16, from the Pedal roll out like thunderous blasts. Magnificent.

There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore, And who always will. So, don't worry about people from your past, there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Geoffrey Parsons’ piano playing is so good that it steals the show
