The gift of music brings so much joy. There are times when the darkness in this world threatens to overwhelm and then good music, as it has been said so well, brings a burst of the eternal into our temporal condition and causes us to look up to its source, God.
Will tonight provided another such joyful burst on the mighty Schantz pipe organ at Gesu Church in downtown Milwaukee after attending a concert. (It’s the biggest organ in our state of Wisconsin.) Here he plays a piece that is so bright and brilliant. (And to me it is just mind blowing how fast he plays,—a little faster than necessary, I might add!) This is the Dubois Toccata. It brought a smile to our faces! +Soli Deo Gloria!+
