What a great summer. It has been so good to be back on the Hugo de Grootkade with the Swans, geese, ducks and old colleagues and friends. I’ve played the last of the summer organ concerts I scheduled in Oosthuizen where the choir sang in 2007. The organ was already 100 years old when Luther nailed his Thesis to the door of the castle church in Wittenburg! It is a graceful instrument that is an inspiration to play.
