    Jazz & Blues: Richard Elliot's version of "Go Tell It On The Mountain"

    Hello all,

    I will be attempting a very rough version of Richard Elliot's arrangement for "Go Tell It On The Mountain" (including the pedal glissando at the end but minus the jazzy additions and pedal intro) at my church tomorrow morning, along with my own improvised version of "The First Noel." I am currently serving as part time organist there and the songs themselves will be played on a 1981 Allen Digital Computer Organ that is, for the most part, in respectable shape. Aside from the principals, a few flutes and mixtures, a few of my favorite stops to use on this instrument are the 16' Contra Fagotto on the Swell and the 16' Bourdon on the Pedal division, while sometimes coupled with the 16' Diapason for added effect. Both seem to give the organ a nice strong sound when needed and it sounds even better when using the Swell to Great coupler too.

    Anyhow, here is a link to Mr. Elliot's performance of "Go Tell It On the Mountain"

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

      Thanks Silken! I'm excited about performing this one. A relative of mine will likely be capturing it tomorrow with her smartphone so I'll see what I can do. My contributions are part of a special service that features storytelling and more music than usual. It is a lively service that has been a yearly tradition for my church before Christmas.
