Thanks for posting that up! I love BWV565, and that's a beautiful rendition of it. The attack on some of the notes sounds just like chiff on a nicely voiced pipe organ flute. Great.

A glass harp.. I have seen people do this before but I did not know it had a name. It is definitely real music on a real instrument. It's a very beautiful sound and fascinating to watch. Thanks for sharing Broni. That's very cool. :)

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
