Composer: * My Own Composition
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Notre Dame de Metz Mutin/Cavaillé-Coll
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Improvisation
This improvisation is based on two ideas married together, the first idea is an immitation of cathedral carillon bells, the second one is a variation of Michael Praetorius' (1571-1621) Fantasia "Christ, unser Her, zum Jordan kam", a piece which I place as one of the top materpieces of the pre-Bach era - speaking of Bach - this improvisation also grew out of my frustration with trying to get a presentable performance of Concerto IV in c-dur!!! - bloody hard piece for me to perform for YouTube .... :-( - well sometime soon (hopefully) ... ;-D I am also working on writing a piece based on this improvisation. An additional influence for this improvisation on me is the piece "Carillon" by Roland van der Berg whose music can be found on the website "Evensong Music". Once I heard this piece I immediately came up with the ideas behind this improvisation.
