Starts with the new Choir strings, with the choir 8‘ and 4‘ flutes featuring part way through. Then we hear the swell strings and 8‘ flute and the piece ends with just the Swell Stop Diapason.
Based on the first three verses of Psalm 81 (Sing we merrily unto God our strength...), this piece contrasts the Tuba (played in chords) with various combinations on the Great and Swell.
Although Hollins asks for an Orchestral Trumpet, the Tuba is a good substitute as the solo stop. It is balanced with Swell to mixture coupled to Great 8, 4 and 2 before building to full Swell and Great at the end.
All of these mp3 demonstrations have been recorded using Hauptwerk’s in built recorder with no external processing applied.
More demos of the Extended Set will be provided - meanwhile, here are some short and simple improvisations that demonstrate some of the new stops and combinations. Apologies for the lack of musical sophistication !
