Lunchtime Oasis

The program itself was not quite my thing, but then, too, there is value unto the composer’s ears, in listening now and then to that which is other than your thing. A set of spirituals arranged for organ by Adolphus Hailstork (one of the coolest not-made-up names one runs across), very nicely played by Lee Ridgway at King’s Chapel. Syncopation in spirituals realized at the console, is not quite like syncopation anywhere else on the planet.
