The first thing I did today as I sat down on the organ bench was to improvise on the Gregorian chant sequence "Victimae paschali laudes". It was like a good warm-up before my Krebs recording session. This improvisation is quite vigorous and fast moving. I wanted to express the joy of Easter through various modes and colours. The opening motive unifies the piece and helps to keep the unity within variety. Several times I jumped to the second manual to create contrasting section without the pedals. Let me know what you think!
When I started to record this piece, I heard Ausra's parents call and ask for us to open the gate. I was a bit worried if I will be able to record it in time, knowing how these things go. Luckily the recording went way better than expected, probably because I had to extra focus under pressure. So anyway, hope you will enjoy this Trompet stop! Only one last movement to go and then I can start recording Kauffmann on Sunday!
