    Default A Game of Works for the King of Instruments (Selection Thread)

    Giving credit where it is due, Dorsetmike suggested a game of organ works composed prior to 1800. However, I'm opening this game up for solo organ works of any and all time periods including the 21st Century.

    My experience with organ music began with Bach, and it had a tremendous impact on me. From that point, I listened to the organ works of other baroque composers and those composers of earlier times. Then I went forward up to current times. I love organ music dearly and hope that other members join in the game and make their favorite selections.

    Selection Rules:

    1. You may vote once daily.

    2. You will have up to 3 selections to make each day - only one selection per composer.

    3. The maximum number of selections per composer is 10.

    4. The work must be for solo organ.

    5. Only complete organ works are allowed - nothing more, nothing less. An opus number or, in the case of Bach, a BWV number would do the trick.

    My 3 selections for today:

    Bach, JS - Pastorale in F major, BWV 590
    Scheidemann - Magnificat Vll Toni
    Weckmann - Ach, wir armen Sunder

    Looking forward to your picks!
