What I absolutely love about complex final chords on pipe organs in particular is that ONE note always stands out above the rest to my ears. It’s almost hiding in there, just peeking up its head above the beautiful tapestry. In this case, it’s the E in the final chord. That’s what for me lifts it to its heights – finding that note and mentally holding onto it as the fundamental and the rest dance around it, whatever it happens to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaZ6MJNnPeU
