Description
My long series of organ meditations/reflections continues with this one, Number 122. I think I may be the only composer here who contributes in this particular genre, so I hope at least a few will enjoy the departure from norm. It is recorded from my Johannus Vivaldi 370 organ using "Capture Duo," an app on my iPad, and then transferred and bounced in Studio One 3 on my desktop computer. (Sounds like I know what I'm talking about. The reality is that I just push a few buttons, try to hit most of the notes correctly, and hope for the best.) If you are interested, the written score can be found here:

Totally get you
with the button-pushing ;-) But the result is pretty flawless here, as usual, so no sweat...

Thanks and take care,
Henrik

I can easily imagine myself
- with a few other souls - sitting on church pew - as I sometime did in the wonderful Saint Thomas church on 5th avenue NYC, listening to this glowing meditation. Really quite wonderful Paul.

Another lovely meditation
I think you're unique here, and there are few others in the world composing this kind of music. Thank you for sharing it with us. I took a copy, thanks.

An Experienced Composers, Who Shares Scores!
Ahh, Paul, you are one of a kind ... and, because of the likes of you, so is MacJams.   Striving to follow in your footsteps, I shall print off your score, fire up my organ ...

...

c’mon, channel your best organ teacher here ... “hands separately, many times...™”

... but also, scoring ...
(To follow on from my previous post ...)

I guess that posts like these also in some way re-remind me of the value of scoring as a way to compose music.   I am right now taking my latest posting, which I call YMWG, and am striving to score it.

... one more thing:
(Sorry to post here three times in a row ...)   ;-)

For “a music-score nerd like me,” it is ... (and has been, for 122 iterations and-counting) ... absolutely priceless to me to be able to follow-along your performances by reading the accompanying score.

Thank you ... professor ... for sharing.   Your contribution to my learning experience has been quite priceless.

Fine work Paul
I run out of superlatives.

A wonderfully calming piece.

Cheers

This is that...
This is very much a meditation, and listening to it brings the mind to that space...

This is not a 'show off' organ piece, but a tone-and-texture rumination...It simply SOUNDS good, and each piece fits snugly with each other piece...

Another lovely one, Paul...

Meditation 122
So calming. I could feel my heart rate slow. Wonderful harmonic layers from the organ sound. Helps that the score is in harmony, too :-) Lovely. Thanks, Paul.

Meditations
I keep admiring your tonal palette. Very nice romantic chords. You also have the good taste not to spell out things that are obvious. For instance, at 3:05-3:09 you have a transition going through a diminished or minor VI, but you don't play the obvious resolution, instead you pick up the melody again. That sort of thing makes your music very enjoyable to listen to. It keeps the listener engaged.
