Today I would like to talk about what kind of organ pieces you can play on manuals only. It's important for organists to know the manualiter repertoire because we not always have access to organs with pedals. So in this video I'll give you a list of Baroque music which can be performed using manuals only.
We will of course start with Bach but will continue with a number of lesser played composers and their pieces. All the pieces in this list are personally tested by me so if you are struggling to find some suitable compositions to play without the pedals, I recommend you watch this video and take notes.
