Yesterday afternoon, Will and his friend, Ryan Mueller, also a young organ student who met Will through the Hope Blog, got together in the loft at Gesu Church downtown and blessed my heart with their music. They both played some wonderful hymns like Ryan’s Crown Him with Many Crowns which was majestic. Will played (special request) Children of the Heavenly Father, Abide with Me, and Salvation Unto Us Has Come. I will be uploading Ryan’s wonderful playing of the hymn here shortly as it has already blessed many on my Facebook page. I also did a short interview with Ryan as to why he loves to play the pipe organ. I liked his answer!
Below is Will’s Vierne piece he is working on. It is quite long, so I just have a short clip. It is a wild, terrifying sort of piece that builds and builds. I didn’t capture the exciting opening measures, but you’ll get the gist. He is getting ready for a concert next month, so this is just a practice clip. Information on Will’s September concert is here at this link for anybody interested.
It was a real pleasure to see these two hardworking young men who desire to bring glory to God through music.
