Guglielmo Enrico Lardelli (1857–1910) was an Italian Australian who migrated from Britain as a teenager and composed hundreds of works. He is best remembered for this baroque-styled "Toccatina" and modern works such as "Dolce Plainte" (Sweet Complaint. Lardelli's "Russian Love Song" has been revived at the BBC proms.

I never heard of Ladelli before, but I'm always on the lookout for works that will demonstrate and instrument to good effect, and I think this works very nicely on the Hill.

It's a "little toccata," as the title says, and the registration is also on the "small side." The writing is "obvious," but pleasant and sounds quite "Italian" to me, particularly in the softer middle section in G Major.

This upload is part of a series of demos of the Hill organ, which will be used in an upcoming review of the sample set for "The Barde."

The score is attached below, as well as a photo of Guglielmo Enrico Lardelli.

The MIDI file is also attached.
