Yesterday we discussed the procedure in creating chordal echos when improvising on any hymn tune. Today's lesson will be focused on a different technique - melodic echos. It's a very colorful way to demonstrate two different manuals and the reed stop in the pedals (if you have one). I hope you will experiment with this technique on a hymn tune of your choice.
