Really pleased this is bringing back happy memories.
I first heard it played by a family friend who was a professional organist. He
used to joke that you could tell if an organist was any good by whether he could
play this through without pauses, or falling off the bench at the closing
chords :)

Also delighted it resonates with Jeanny and John :)

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
