O GOD OUR HELP - FRED SWANN - how can we ever thank you enough? I just LOVE that G7 pick-up Chord with the C in the Pedal. I hope it happens twice in this rendition, perhaps at near SFZ on the final stanza.

Long ! long ! Sorry for Bach!

By: bill steward on Mar, 21 2015

beautiful ! beautiful ! great for me.

Meditative, introspective, Soli Deo Gloria and not praise on the performer. Very sweet, tender and pastoral, as the piece (notation AND title) suggests.

This is the first time I've heard the trumpets on that organ. Some may think it's overdone. Me, I'm sitting at least a foot above my chair!

By: enchamade on Aug, 27 2012

Ah,that would be the Trompeta Majestatis given and installed by Anthony Bufano in memory of his mother. I think it could wake the dead.

By: MusicDonor2014 on Jan, 13 2016

Most of the dead NEED to be awakened :-) It is marvelous - on recording - and in person. THANK YOU, Anthony Bufano.

By: Tromba on Jan, 22 2016

Can you imagine tuning that rank? Awesome.

By: stlorganist on Mar, 29 2016

OK now I'm awake... AWESOME!

Is this an "improv" on the piece? It's just not the one everybody knows!

By: Kevinathome on Sep, 16 2012

Agreed, the introduction is altered.

By: mjgouldini on Jan, 19 2015

I wish this had been labeled as an Improv. I wanted to hear an authentic presentation - which this is not.

Not the best instrument for this particular rag. An organ does not have the articulation needed for the intricate syncopation and subtle nuances of counterpoint. Unfortunately seems to slug along in a mire.

I could forgive all the trashy, glitzy and tasteless arrangements Fox was responsible for on the strength of this one arrangement alone. I can't describe the deep emotions it awakens in me but it does, every time.

A dramatic and moving accompaniment to the affirmation of belief by a powerful congregation of male voices

By: frarozu on Apr, 21 2012

Marvelous!!!!!

By: enchamade on Apr, 25 2014

This is the kind of hymn singing and accompaniment I so sorely miss in the contemporary worship services.

By: Donek on Aug, 19 2016

I was there, That was one fantastic Memorial service. We sent Virgil off in style. He would have been impressed.

By: mrorgan on Aug, 10 2017

Oh my!!! I have goose bumps! This is so fantastic!!
