This guy is new to me. However, the price for his organ books was cheap enough on Amazon so I thought why not? They are described as being a collection of easy pieces - they can be played on manuals or with pedals. We've all been in situations where we need some music fast that sounds good and is sight readable. Well this books seems to fit the bill.
Three pieces here from near the end of the book.
1. 50. Allegretto Cantabile
2. 52. Wedding March
3. 56. Elegy
The Cantabile is a lovely little piece for flutes.
Wedding March is a full organ piece. Interspersed throughout is quieter moments on the Swell suggesting bells. It finishes again on Full Organ after a long bell like section on the quieter swell registration.
Elegy is a piece for strings and flutes. The last few bars have a repeating pattern descending, suggesting the burial of someone, or death? A sustained chord resolves into a final E Major chord, perhaps suggesting resurrection or joy of heaven? Who knows! I suppose it can mean whatever someone wants it to. It is a lovely little piece though, very reflective, as you'd expect from a piece named elegy!
All the pieces from the 50s are now uploaded. By the end of the weekend hopefully all the 20s and 30s will be as well, leaving about a week's worth of uploads left until the whole book is uploaded.
