A fine performance of a piece by a notable 18th-century organist.
Another fine performance, on a different organ.

- Support what a delightful performance. Very high quality recording. —Ancient Apparition • Champagne? • 5:46pm • 07:46, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
- I'll leave a message on your talk page. It's been pointed out we have two, and both are very good. 17:27, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
- Support both or either--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 13:57, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
- I think both are very nice performances; if we really want to choose just one to feature, I prefer the first file, as the second sounds muddier (perhaps due to the characteristics of the room it was recorded in). Kat Walsh (spill your mind?) 02:31, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
- Oppose Second The first is performed better than the second, which does have rather unfortunate pauses in between phrases and seems to be uncertain over some of its phrasing (eg 0:22-ish and 0:35-ish). However, I don't like the sound in the first, which if memory serves was done by the same person who did the now delisted Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. The key problem in the first one for me is that it sounds as though it has been done on an artificial organ on a computer with echo added later - the "Trumpet" noise which starts at around 0:28 sounds terribly artificial. There is no indication where it was recorded, which makes me suspicious. Weak oppose for the first tooMajor Bloodnok (talk) 14:30, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
