My wife said NOT to upload this, as "people will laugh" at it.

So, it won't be the first time that people have laughed at something I've done... ;-)

It's probably not my best playing, but I wanted to show the "soft solo" reeds, which I think this does.

I played the accompaniment on the Hoofdwerk with the Viola da Gamba throughout, and the Pedal is the Subbass 16' with the HW coupled to it.

The first verse shows the Fagot 16' of the Rugwerk played an octave higher. (ALL the reeds have the tremulant on in this performance.)

The second verse uses the Trechterregal 8′, also of the Rugwerk.

The third verse shows the Vox Humana 8' of the Bovenwerk.

I played this in a "strict" manner, and it sounds a little "wrong" perhaps for Schubert, but I insisted that this be done in a "strict, classical" manner each time I had to "suffer" through this at weddings or funerals. I found it quite difficult to play the 6 against 4 with some of the ornaments! This "arrangement" is by Bryan Hesford in the "Organists' Folio, Volume One".

Incidentally, I used only 3 soloists during my time at OLG, and without question, I had the three best looking AND best singing girls in the area!

Sorry, I wouldn't have said that, except my wife was mean in saying what she said... ;-)

OK, lads, chuckle up!
