Music Video: Toccata by Sky

Leave a comment

After years of searching I have finally found a music video for Toccata by UK instrumental group, Sky. My dad used to play the compilation cassette Masterpieces: The Best of Sky quite a bit when I was a kid, and it soon became a favorite. However, the album quickly wore out due to heavy use and out of circulation. Tocatta is a modernization (but not crappified) of Bach’s organ masterpiece. As a bit of a change, I will be posting Sky’s version and an organ version as well so that you can compare the two.

Next, we have the organ version with graphical notation:

For those interested, Australia-born classical guitarist John Williams was one of the founding members, a fact that I wasn’t aware of until I read the wiki page. I have spent quite a bit of my time over the years listening to his wonderful music.
