    Some Christmas organ music.

    Musuc featuring the organ at Temple square. Some choir, but mostly organ. There is some fine pedalwork on the third or fourth song and again about 22 minutes in. A bit long, but well worth a listen.

    David, Is there any chance you could post the recordings somewhere that doesn't require a subscription account to listen?

    I just tried to upload them to my Gallery here but they are too large (8MB each) and won't load. I have added them to Dropbox--maybe you can get to them there:

    It looks like those links will work for me. I look forward to listening to them later tonight.

    Edit: That was fun to listen to. Thanks for sharing. Is there sheet music available for these songs?

    Thanks for sharing these, David. I really like her registration on "In Dulci Jubilo" and the Virgil Fox arrangement of Bach's "Nun danket alle Gott" sounds really good on that organ.

    You're welcome. Yes, I think the "In Dulci Jubilo" is really nice. The "Nun Danket Alle Gott" is just a little muddy for me, but that is a consequence of the Sanctuary having about a 2-second reverb time, I think. We have been very pleased with our Klais instrument--we got a good deal financially and they have given excellent support. (But I think one would expect that from a builder that furnished organs for 3 major Cathedrals in Germany: Kln, Trier, and Aachen.) I don't have a recording of it (drat!) but you should hear our Mary playing Lang's "Tuba Tune" with our gorgeous 8' Hooded Tuba--it is just outstanding!

    Does anyone here know who musicologists actually attribute that version of "In Dulci Jubilo" to? No scholar of Bach's organ music believes that it is actually Bach, unless it is something he wrote when he was 12 years old. But it is delightful, all right. I'd love to know to whom it is "attributed".

    Tony, scholars now attribute this to Johann Michael Bach.

    In the Wikipedia article they identify him thus:

    ...a German composer of the Baroque period. He was the brother of Johann Christoph Bach, as well as first cousin, once removed and father-in-law of Johann Sebastian Bach (he was the father of J.S. Bach's first wife Maria Barbara Bach). He is sometimes referred to as the "Gehrener Bach" to distinguish him from the "Wuppertaler Bach", Johann Michael Bach (1745–1820).

    Later in the article:

    His most-performed work is the small chorale prelude for organ, In Dulci Jubilo, which for many years was attributed to J. S. Bach (it was ascribed the catalog number BWV 751).


    I am not sure when the attribution was corrected or by whom. I hope that helps.
