I'm amazed at how patient everyone was (no screaming and cursing) with this technological disaster. So this morning, before going to my own second day Easter service I re-recorded this video. It became a little more extended and more detailed than the previous one - but the more details, the better, right?
If you want to know how this famous hymn is put together, all its tonal plan, modulations, cadences, and chords watch it now. I'm sure many of my readers played this hymn for their Easter services. Therefore it would be quite handy for them to know what's exactly is in this hymn. Enjoy!
PS Today's Second Day Easter service at St. John's here in Vilnius was quite an adventure for me (in terms of improvisation) and a good lesson for many organists, I think. Stay tuned for the details in tomorrow's post.
