Organ Nerd Gathering, uh, er, Organ Recital

I had a busy weekend and had no time for blogging. I am an organ nerd taking organ lessons and Saturday was my organ recital (I know, when you picture "organist," a little old lady with curly gray hair comes to mind, right? Well, I'm breakin' the norm, baby!).  I played Bach's Prelude and Fugue in G minor, which only took me about 8 months to learn. That's right- 8 months. That's a long time to practice a piece. I forgot how awesome it sounds because I've heard it so many times.

Me in all my organ nerd glory.

The awesome organ I played on.  It's a bit intimidating at first,
 but once I got used to it, I was ok playing it.  The inscription on the organ says, "Glory to God in the Highest." I love it! As I was listening to the pieces being played, I read that inscription over and over again, feeling grateful for the men who were inspired so many years ago to compose works dedicated to God.
