At the end of November of last year, I spent three days with extremetly motivated church organists from various parts of Lithuania and led a course on Harmony and Organ Improvisation. On day 1 of this course, I was asked to do an organ demonstration at Vilnius University St. John's church where I work.
Today I would like to share with you an excerpt of demonstration of the strings. Please forgive my Lithuanian language but I think the sounds and the names of the stops will be easy to understand to everyone. I hope you will watch this video until the very end because there I also demonstrate some of the nicest sounds high-pitched stops can produce.
