In September 2013, I had the honor to play the main organ in the St. Bavo Church in Haarlem. It was the first time I played a church organ, and it was a terrific experience. 'Majestic', is the word that describes it best.
A week before I had had an introduction by the organist Anton Pauw and when the Full Moon was in Pisces, he gave me the keys to the church and left me alone with the famous Christian Müller Organ, built in 1866. What you hear is what happened that evening. Basically me having a great time. One take, recorded with a single Zoom H4N, no editing and no added effects. Just the organ and the church. It was pure bliss, and a very spiritual, religious moment.
(this is best listened to through headphones or a decent stereo set)
