Improvisation a week

It’s been rather crazy lately and I forgot to post something last week and this week I forgot my camera.  It’s too bad really because I was very happy with my Offertory improv from Saturday’s Vigil Mass.  On that note, I decided to pull something out from my trip to France to compete in the Marchal Improvisation competition this past October (2011).  In the time allotted for practice, I made a little recording of me testing out the instrument.  At Duquesne University where I teach, we call this “demonstration of the organ.”  Although usually we use funny themes like Mary had a Little Lamb for class, I just invented a theme on the spot.
