'Widor's Toccata' is BEST Toccata!

This was my Dad's favourite piece of organ music, and I agree with him - it's my fave as well.

One time I was sitting in St Patrick's cathedral alone, thinking about him, and the organist came in and began to practise this spontaneously, which was fitting.  I guess it's a hard piece to play because he kept stopping and starting it again.  This is an organ piece for people who normally aren't too keen on organ music - even 'Toccata and Fugue in D Minor' isn't as neat as this one, I think.  I often play it when Dad's soul comes to visit.  <3
