These are my top three picks for the Secrets of Organ Playing Contest Week 57. It's about 3 hours early (hoping no late entries) but it's almost my bedtime. Yes, I was a participant, but I think it's a bit awkward choosing myself.
I've compiled the contest entries into a playlist so you can listen to all of them easily:
As per the contest post (though I decided to create this post as well as leaving a comment):
This week anybody can pick the winners based on what sounded the most interesting and best performed to you. Next Monday simply write your comment under this post with your 3 winning choices. Participants CAN vote for themselves too. I will calculate who received the most number of votes and announce in separate post. -- @organduo
1st place - @partitura
Loved the registration and the playing as usual—there's simply not enough hours in a day to get the time to play your scores!
2nd place - @jeremyowens9501
This piece from the Little Organ Book is on my ever growing list of pieces to learn. I liked your registration in the RH. Consider getting an external recording device and placing it in an optimal place so we can hear the church's acoustics.
3rd place - @tormus1958
In 8 weeks you could present the entire Pater Noster suite. I suggest you record in landscape mode and sync audio further away from the organ so we hear the acoustics of the church.
Check @organduo's blog for the next contest entry page. Hoping more of the community will vote for their choice of winners this week.
