To be the organist for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is sort of like being, well, ranked #1 in every sport played in the US. OK, perhaps only among other organists, but you do earn your keep… [Not for the humor impaired]
And a little organ anatomy lesson from the organist of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir:
Most church organs don’t have the 32′ pipes. It would over-organ the space. Yes, believe me, you can have too much organ in too little space.
Oh, did I mention that I play English Handbells as well as organ? Although I highly doubt I’ll ever be in a bell choir that does this during a worship service:
Have a very Merry Christmas, wherever you are, and may the peace and wonder of the season be yours, whatever faith you follow. “Love and joy be to you/ and to you your wassail too.”
