I love the organ. No other instrument comes close to producing such noble and powerful sounds. But it can be a bit of a beast to play. I would have loved to attend one of Alexander Schreiner’s Bach recitals in the Salt Lake Tabernacle. Nine of his hymns are included in the 1985 edition of the Latter-day Saint hymnal. I chose one of them for my fifth prelude.
Fun fact: When Chuck’s Grandpa Hutchings was on his mission in Germany, he and his companion would operate the bellows of the organ while 11-year-old Alex would play. Based on his uncle’s recollection, this was done at one of the big Lutheran churches, probably in Nuremberg.
