AVA176: I Was Greatly Embarrassed As The Congregation Continued With The Fourth Verse A Cappella! Alan writes: Vidas and Ausra, I enjoyed this podcast. I think the best piece of advice for me was: “…you will not get a medal for playing advanced music.” I have to remember that playing the organ is sort of like driving a car, in that you have to know your limits. Otherwise you could end up losing control, which can sound pretty bad in the case of a pipe organ. I had a different experience this past Sunday when I was playing at a local Uniting church: I was bringing the last hymn to conclusion, and wondered why the minister was soldiering on at full tempo instead of following my ritardando. I was then greatly embarrassed as the congregation continued with the fourth verse a cappella! I quickly switched registrations and backed off the swell pedal, and gently brought the organ back in for the second half of the verse. Nobody was fooled though. Regards, Alan
