    Default Unknown piece of organ music and classical piece.

    Please could I have some help in trying to identify this piece of organ music that was recorded on cassette for me by my grandfather. Since he passed some years ago I am unable to ask what the title is.

    I include a link to a Youtube clip,

    Many thanks

    Also I include a link to a Youtube clip from a Sonic the hedgehog cartoon which, after 10.05 in the video features some music in the background briefly but it sounds as if it is based off a well known classical piece but I am unable to name the tune. Any help would be appreciated

    Regards

    The first one is the Fantasia for Oboe and Organ in F major by Johann Ludwig Krebs.

    The first piece is deeply personal so I can't thank you enough for identifying it. It's been with me for years and was running out of ideas on where and who to ask what it might be. My sincerest thanks.

    The second I know is slightly amusing and irritating due to the fact I could picture a wind instrument playing the melody but not remember the tune.

    Thank you again for your knowledge and speed of reply.

    I wish I'd found this forum sooner and much earlier.
