A Mighty Fortress Is Our God arr. Diane Bish www.thejoyofmusic.org

New video:

Diane Bish plays her arrangement of A Mighty Fortress on the 117 Rank Ruffatti Organ of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale. Features a dazzling display of the organ’s 5 sets of en chamade trumpets: 8′ Trompette de Fete 8′ Trompette en Chamade 8′ Trompeta Réal 16′ Double Trompette 16′ Contre Trompette This video has already been posted on my channel in the past, but in very poor quality. This re-post is much higher quality. I will attempt to re-post all or most of my low-quality videos with higher quality ones in the next few months. Sheet music can be found here: thejoyofmusic.org

    @ifuliki
    I spelled my name wrong!

  • ifuliki says:

    Wow. That’s quite the organ. Where is it?

    @steffeni Which one? He wrote over one hundred.

  • JurisArcane says:

    Is she amazing or what? I started watching Diane when I was probably 10. That was 20 years ago. She is a fantastic musician, and a great inspiration to future organists.

  • steffeni says:

    This is indeed a wonderful recording of Martin Luther’s “Battle hymn of the Reformation”. Only JS Bach’s cantata surpasses this in elegance and power.

  • Justintime4math says:

    There’s definitely some 32′ stop(s) on the end.

  • passacaglia28 says:

    This was my grandfather’s favorite hymn and it was played at his funeral. It has so much sentimental value to me. Thanks for posting. :)

    Do you have a clip of her playing the Organ at Notre Dame in Paris?

  • MrAlex413x says:

    And i also like your toccata suite gothique with the 32′ contra trombone ! all that power at your feet wow .

  • MrAlex413x says:

    wow this sounds amazing ! do you have a 32′ going aswel? or just a 16ft at the end chord ??

  • falaqdad15 says:

    ruffatti made a mistake. Trompeta Real is always supposed to be enclosed, not en chamade. tis okay though, but Trompeta Batalla would be the appropriate name for that en chamade rank

    They are all available on DVD from the Joy of Music website. These and many many more.

  • dwarrren9 says:

    We are all of these videos you put up! Keep them coming!

  • theaterpipe1 says:

    Believe it or not, that organ was the best I have ever heard, I am serious, it was!

  • bishfan says:

    Many. I have a Spanish piece played by her on a Spanish organ in Spain. See “Sonata De Clarines”.

  • falaqdad15 says:

    Has she ever done any Spanish or Italian Baroque pieces?

  • bishfan says:

    I have a “homemade” clip of Joy and Diane playing together. See “2002 Joy of Music Alaska Tour Part 2″.

  • blowmedown09 says:

    Did you see her years ago playing the great organs of Europe? It was wonderful. On at least one show she had Joy Brown Weiner, violinist, of Memphis performing with her.

  • mkl62 says:

    I am an ELCA from South Carolina. I play the piano and organ. Today (October 25), I played this as the opening hymn, since it is Reformation Sunday. It is #504 in Evangelical Worship. Just thought I’d share.

  • mandemonic63 says:

    Actually, the arrangement is by Bach, the words are by Martin Luther.

  • helloitsmelol097 says:

    I have been playing organ for 3 years and I am not that bad and i’m just learning pedals and I hope to get very good and i’m currently playing for a small church

  • dwarrren9 says:

    Uh, If you didn’t want to hear this than why did you watch the video? And this wasn’t written by Bach, it was written by Martin Luther.

  • 1968mjh says:

    Sorry, but I’d rather hear J S Bachs “mighty fortress” played by a quartet of plastic harmonicas than this schlock.

    Your Welcome

    Yes. Ok, thank you!
