There are absolutely no pieces that are more entertaining to play than 18th century English organ voluntaries. And I treated myself to two volumes of these. Great slow full diapason introductions, followed by fugues or trumpet tunes with winsome echos. Most of them are by lesser composers who were leading organists in their day. Boatloads of fun for the fingers. And many are quite useful for entrances and for that time with the wedding guests straggle out of the church.
