I've already posted LOTS of info about, Everett Titcomb (1884-1968), so, I'll just say that "Today's Titcomb Trio" MAY be the last of his music - at least for awhile...

"Credo in unum Deum" ("I believe in one God" uses the Gregorian chant melody of the Credo (Nicene Creed) of the Mass as its thematic material. The piece is essentially a "full organ" work, with a softer central section.

Written in 1940, and like much of his music, published by the B.F.Wood Music Co. in Boston. It is dedicated to Francis Snow, Mus. Doc., who was organist of Trinity Church in the same city.

This piece IMMEDIATELY calls to mind Titcomb's "Communion Service in D Major," which as I recall, is also dedicated to Snow, and seems to "belong" to that work.

I can't help but feel that piece would "struggle" with a small organ and/or dry room. It's almost like the "grand French style" where the organist at the Grand Orgue THUNDERS out improvisations in alternation with the Choir chanting the plain song at the other end of the building...

THANKS to Carson Cooman for sending me this work! :-)
