Feike Asma (1912-1984) was a Dutch organist and composer of organ music.
Though shunned by most of the professional organ community, he was (and is) loved by most of the conservative churchgoing community in Holland.
His teacher was Jan Zwart; in his own compositions he extended this style to the extreme.
He loved romantic (particularly French) organ music and the color of French organs.
Except by organists of the “Jan Zwart” signature, his works are seldomly played anymore.
These Psalm variations are a good example of his sometimes beautiful and rather exuberant style of playing and writing. The psalm melody, played in halves only, as is the custom in strict Dutch Reformed Churches, follows in his own harmonization at the end.
