What a thrill it was to be asked to be the first organist to perform on this new instrument with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. I had conducted most of the Dvorak Mass several times with orchestra, and it was a joy to prepare the organ-only version for this event. With all the continual crescendos and decrescendos and the gamut of colors and dynamics, it was a challenge, but deeply gratifying on this magnificent instrument.
