A few days ago I came across a new video of Angela Kraft Cross, American organist and composer. She visited my church with a concert a few years ago and I always remember her organ playing fondly. So this time when I saw her video, I delved deep into her YouTube channel and was glad she renewed her interest in recording organ music recently. That's where I came across St Bede's Voluntary. I fell in love with it right away, asked Angela where I could get the score and bought it. This piece is part of her collection Journey to Wholeness. I was very glad to spend a few days practicing this Voluntary. The character should be Maestoso. Can you feel it?
I have played this piece using Velesovo sample set by Sonus Paradisi of Hauptwerk VPO. If you like my music making, you can support me on Patreon and get free organ CD's at https://patreon.com/secretsoforganplaying
