Description:
I found this wonderful piece in the Petrucci Library. It is the last of a collection of Czech organ works, and is a fine piece.

I can find no information about the composer, Karel František Pic, but his dates are 1786-1853. Don't be fooled into thinking that his music will be of the "early romantic" style, as it is VERY baroque!

I can't recall the location of the collection, and I can't find the file that I downloaded, but I believe that there are a number of excellent pieces in the collection. If/when I do find it, I will follow up with the information.

Another reason I chose the "Fuga Mi-b maggiore" (Fugue in E-flat Major) is that it has a very active pedal part with 3 long passages in running 16th notes, and I wanted something that would get my legs moving again...

I don't know if I mentioned it by left knee is more than 2 inches out of alignment... :-(

Just think what THAT feels like... :-0

I chose the magnificent Bovenkerk organ for this piece, and I think that I made the right choice. My registration is basically the full plenum of the Hoofdwerk, without the highest pitched mixture (Scherp) but with the Tertian and Trompet added, as I think that there should be a tierce in the mixture.

Of course the LONG echo after the final chord is the BEST part...

Hopefully I can do more works from this collection, and will share the link if I can find it.
