It is a thrill and a big honor to learn from you. THANKS.


Here's what I would do to get a good recorded image of the sound of that magnificent organ...

Walk about the Church while the organist plays the music to be recorded. When your ears tell you, "This is the PLACE!" Put the microphones there! Don't calculate, don't measure, don't over-think this elegant project.... LISTEN!!!

Let me know how it works for you....
