Gratuitous Musickal Posting (TM)

Not me. This time our old TexasBestGroking pal JohnL out-nerds me with his "Switched on Buxtehude" offering, complete with audio download.

I'm a little nervous about John's synthesizer confessions, given that whole Wendy Carlos episode. If we have to start calling him "Johanna," he's banned from the blogroll.

As a high school friend and mental health professional, I can verify that John is indeed a heterosexual male. In the rather unlikely event that he is also transgendered, it is so far repressed that Lucifer is going to get a career as a ski instructor before you start calling him "Johanna."

Thanks for the endorsement, owlish. So Rob, what did you think about the music?

Listening now....I'm beginning to think more Thomas Dolby than Wendy Carlos. Seriously, tho, I don't think you over-ornament at all. And the tempi are much more to my taste than the painfully slow slogging a lot of old-school organists.

I don't know the piece. I've actually got a book of Buxtehude keyboard works, but rarely play from it. I find they don't translate very satisfactorily to the piano.
