Now it is possible to look at some of the "stats" on "who watches what" on Youtube, and the organ stuff seems to draw an encouraging audience, most of the vids seem to be enjoyed most by malesaged 13 to 18! Kind of an interesting demographic, eh?
Avec le style de ce forum, je ne suis pas motivé. Le niveau est celui d'une certaine autosatisfaction. Je n'y ai rien trouvé qui rejoint notre sujet. C'est semer des graines dans un désert. Je trouve que You tube est nettement meilleur. Mais Même sur You Tube, j'ai reçu des injures, c'est pourquoi je ne fait plus de commentaires publics sur You Tube.
Je ne peux pas éclairer des gens qui refusent de bouger de leur rocking-chair.
And Operating the Pipe Organ at St. Francois D'Assise ChurchWhat I liked the most about Doors Open Ottawa this year was that the sites we visited weren't busy and they weren't rushed. The volunteers really had time for us. The organist - his name is Gilles - at St. Francois D'Assise Church on Fairmont allowed us to "play" the organ, he played us a piece by Bach, he showed us the inside where the pipes are and he brought out a pipe they don't use anymore for us to look at.
The recitals have predominantly featured organ and classical music but have also included songs by Kylie Minogue, Coldplay and U2.
I wonder has anyone done a video basic introduction to the Pipe organ with ( simple ) examples of the different sounds available ( for example the difference between flutes and reeds ) and what all the stops and couplers do ?
