The Letter this week is the Regal R
R is for Rigadaun by Andre Campra, - could be a wonderfully majestic wedding piece.
Here it is played by Diane Bish, organist extraordanaire, on the Sibermann organ at Ebermunster Abbey in Ebermunster, France.
Diane Bish starts the video by talking about some of the unusual features of this organ, but then plays the Rigadaun spectacularly - both the music and her wonderful talent and style are quite splendid.
For more wonderful R interpretation visit here with thanks to Denise Nesbitt and her great helpers.
