While of These Emblems We Partake

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.
