Here is the "first movement" of Carson's "Suite Breve", Opus 894.

The suite is a set of three pieces that may be played either together or separately.

The first movement, "Variations" is dedicated to Adrian and Pam Self.

A presentation of the the lyrical (original) theme is followed by five variations:

Theme (Gently flowing)
Variation 1 (Fast, very rhythmic)
Variation 2 (Same tempo)
Variation 3 (Meditative)
Variation 4 (Dancing)
Variation 5 ((Sarabande-like)

A return of the theme and a brief coda conclude the movement.

I did two versions of this work to contrast the "nature" of the 2 big Willis organs.

This one, shows Hereford to be a bit more "classical," while Salisbury, is a bit more "mystical."

I intend to complete the Suite ASAP!

THANK YOU, Carson!
