Steve Chandler replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Choralvorspiel über "Jesu, meine Freude" (on Hauptwerk Virtual Pipe Organ/Sonus Paradisi Doesburg)
"The rendering sounds very realistic, but it's hard to hear the cantus firmus."

"You're right; I should repost it once I've entered in the text. Socrates Arvanitakis said:

"I hear lots of things that remind me of Bach Oratorios, like the beginning of St Mathew.  I'll have to take some more time to listen to the full thing.  But one thing I've noticed is the lack of any remarkable thematic material.  "

Philip Daniel replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Fughetta super "Jesu, meine Freude" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"]
"gregorio X said:
Hi Philip.. 
Sadly, the recording stopped short at around bar 30..



That's odd...I'm in the middle of class, so I can't check it, but at bar 30 there should be a new exposition with the subject presented in both original and…"

gregorio X replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Fughetta super "Jesu, meine Freude" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"]
"Hi Philip.. 
I like your theme, and it's harmonic possibilities..  (To my mind you are definitely using fugal technique). 
I think it evolves quite well.. and the sequences contrast well with the theme.. I am not certain though, at bar 10, why you…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Fughetta super "Jesu, meine Freude" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"]
"It is a simple piece to listen to, but I like it, it is very nice. Not sure if it is a real fugue, but nonetheless it is a nice piece of work."

Per-Erik Rosqvist replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Fughetta supra "Kyrie, Gott Vater in Ewigkeit" [part of my work-in-progess "Orgelbüchlein"] -- Criticism appreciated!
"The speed, note-lengths, should be longer, or tempo slightly lower, in my view. The abundance of marcatos seems superfluous?The exposition (though the subject was hard to like at first) is enjoyable, the middle-part to the ending coherent and also…"

Antonio Freixas replied to Philip Daniel's discussion Toccata in stile fuga con alcune licenze [for pedal piano/pedalier]
"The loud parts are a bit-heavy handed. I realize you are probably aiming for an intense contrast, and contrast is what keeps a piece interesting. But too much of anything gets tiring. The piece, as a whole, has contrast, but the individual musical…"

Lara Poe replied to Philip Daniel's discussion A series of chorale preludes for organ (ongoing project)
"These are quite nice– short and sweet.  In terms of purely aesthetic things with the score, you do sometimes have notes overlapping on the score.  That's something I would change to make it easier to read and look prettier.  
I do enjoy the…"
