With hundreds and even thousands of organ pieces to choose from, some people are rather lost. They like this and like that. One day they practice a Baroque composition and the second day - Romantic. And I don't mean they sight-read, no, they practice and perfect them.
Sometimes organist chooses a piece which is too difficult for him at the moment. But he likes the piece so much and tries to work it out. Another time, it's quite the opposite - the piece is very easy but artistic quality is really low.
Choosing wisely what to practice is an advantage. What's more important, though, is deciding to practice in the first place.
