This is brilliant! I have downloaded the high res version and will stick it above my keyboard to give me a good giggle when I’m practicing. The amount of people who think we just hop on and play and don’t understand the multitasking that is involved!
Hello. I have shown this to our parish organist (he had an Organ Scholarship to Oxford) – he particularly appreciated the comment about the B flat pedal! As he says, if the organ plays up the organist is deemed to have played a wrong note!
