Here is an amazing rendition of Bach's famous "Toccata and Fuge in D Minor" originally written for organ and has been arranged for harp.

"I got thinkin' how we was holy when we was one thing, an' mankin' was holy when it was one thing. An' it on'y got unholy when one mis'able little fella got the bit in his teeth an' run off his own way, kickin' an' draggin' an' fightin'. Fella like that bust the holiness. But when they're all workin' together, not one fella for another fella, but one fella kind of harnessed to the whole shebang, that's right, that's holy."

I never really liked the original much. Perhaps because it's overplayed. A lot of great music gets ruined from overplaying :( , but this rendition gives new life to the piece.

I agree that the new rendition gives new life to the piece.

I am an organist and do have a special place for this piece.
