An alternative spine-tingler for me is click here Toccata by Widor. If you've never heard it, let the music develop from an average beginning.
Often used in the not too recent past as recessional music, particularly at weddings.
To get the best of the very deep notes, cathedral organs with huge pipes bring out bass notes which cannot be played by average church organs ...... but who cares with a sound like that on a celebration day.
I certainly agree about that organ. What a machine! Very slightly spoilt by the organist who is slightly imprecise in a couple of places. Here's me criticizing and I can't play one!
I agree about Widor's Toccata. I remember coming out of the Midnight Mass one Christmas in Portsmouth Cathedral and the organist played it. I just had to sit and listen to it; it's a piece I've always enjoyed (so much so that back in the 80's when I used to do wedding videos, I used it as background music in the highlight video of the church service).
