Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — Pūrvi Prelude (2018) for organ
The composer writes: "'Pūrvi Prelude' (2018) employs an interesting mode typical of music in Northern India and Bangladesh, called Pūrvi or Poorvi. It is described as serious and mystical in character. The organ piece’s mood is inspired by the world and atmosphere of traditional Bengal Baul singers, religious performers from Bangladesh."
