Marco Lo Muscio (b. 1971) — Estampie (from Gothic Dances) (2017) for organ
“Gothic Dances” (2017) is a set of six organ pieces. Each dance uses harmonies influenced by Medieval/Gothic music and each takes an inspiration from a painting, work of architecture, or a historical figure from the Middle Ages.

Marco Lo Muscio (b. 1971) is an Italian organist and composer. He concertizes actively in programs that feature his own music as well as organ transcriptions of works by “progressive rock” composers such as John Hackett, Steve Hackett, Keith Emerson, and others. Lo Muscio’s own musical style draws on influence from both progressive rock and the classical organ literature, with some forays into medieval and Renaissance music. He has been artistic director of several Italian organ festivals and his works have been played around the world by many major concert organists.
