I worked on some new literature last night and I must say, it is such a pleasure to play the W&G! It was extremely beneficial (besides the great pleasure and joy) to hear [the dedication recital] because it was a tremendous learning experience to hear the organ in the worship space, instead of from the bench. The colors are vibrant, warm, and the pedals really “wrap around” the sound with a much greater foundation.  I have more confidence in the settings I’m using, knowing they sound even better to the listener.  I came home inspired with what I accomplished and enthusiastic about playing serious literature, something I’ve not experienced for a couple of years!

I second [Karen's] motion. Excellent work, it was great to see the instrument in such thoughtful care as yours. Ryan said the sound shook the floors on Sunday night, so it should be a treat to hear soon. It's been a pleasure working with you, Jim, thanks so much!
