Philip Posted January 28, 2011 Share Posted January 28, 2011 Lamentably perhaps I play very little Bach. BWV 729 I do every Christmas plus a few other preludes, and I have done the St Anne Fugue once but very little else. Inspired entirely by handsoff's post in this forum, the other day I hit upon the idea of using the 8 short P&Fs for my post-service voluntaries through Lent (picking six of them, one for each Sunday morning - our vicar has decided to have no pre-service music to try to stop them all from talking). After examining the music online and then buying a copy earlier (I decided having a properly laid out book was worth spending £8 on) I have just spent a very enjoyable half hour or so sight-reading through the set. There were several bits which will need some work such as some of the trickier pedalling and rapid manual phrases, but generally it was very successful. I know they are not thought to be by Bach (making my opening to this post something of a contradiction), so what should I put down on the weekly notice sheet? I'm highly tempted to just attribute them to Bach (especially as they've all been assigned BWV numbers), and I doubt anyone will query it! Is anyone on here planning to do anything in particular for voluntaries during Lent? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
