English composer Douglas Bell served as organist of St. Bartholomew’s Church, Marsden, near Huddersfield, England from 1955 until 2003. He was a student of Francis Jackson and holds a Fellowship certificate from the Royal College of Organists. Bell has composed and published many organ works. In addition to his musical pursuits, Bell played professional cricket for the teams of Huddersfield, Marsden, and Elland.
“Per organo molto piccolo” (2013) was written for Carson Cooman and written to be playable on even a very small organ (hence the title). The original instrument was an Italian-style positive organ with two stops: 8’ principal and 4’ flute.
