Wannes Vanderhoeven Posted July 1, 2013 Share Posted July 1, 2013 I use to play a substantial prelude and poslude before and after every church service. Since last year, the parish team takes praiseworthy initiatives to establish a more convivial and social contact between members of the community. One of the side effects is that since a few months, there are very animated conversations in the church before and after service. My problem is that the conversation of the assembly is becoming so loud that it makes it absolutely impossible to me to play in a concentrated manner (the console is near to the altar, close to the audience). At this moment, I'm feeling that preparing and playing a substantial piece of literature or improvisation is a useless effort which doesn't make sense anymore. I don't really see a possibility to make a change in this evolution, so I'm considering to set aside the habit of playing a prelude and postlude. Yesterday, the sound of people talking was so irritantly loud, that I just stopped playing in the middle of p. 3 of Vierne III Final; nobody even noticed.
